Even worse, religious fanatic idiots. Yikes. An idiot is one thing, but a dangerous idiot is something else all together. Religious fundamentalism throws gasoline of the smoldering embers of American retardation, igniting an angry conflagration of aggressive and menacing stupid so terrifying that the sane people feel they have 5 minutes to evacuate the idiots’ presence.
More than half of Protestants could not identify Martin Luther as the person who inspired the Protestant Reformation.
Ow! That’s so stupid it hurts! If you’re that dumb, you really need to be tossed out of Protestantism. As if we didn’t know that already, a study adds to the tonnage of evidence pressing down on our chests, making us catch our breath once again at the idiocy of our land. There is nothing new here. Alexis de Torqueville noted 180 years ago that we were a land of willful retards who spat on the notion of learning and culture as that of “Old Europe.” This moronitude continues to this day – “freedom fries,” “surrender monkeys,” on and on, any insult at our cultural and intellectual betters to rid us of the nagging notion that we are a nation of idiots flopped onto sofas, swilling Budweiser while we stretch to gaze at the Hypnotube over the looming mount of groaning and overstretched bellies. It’s one thing to be stupid and humble. You find a lot of folks like this in 3rd World countries, and you have to admire them in a way. They’re dumb, but they wish they weren’t, and they wonder at an educated fellow in that he had the opportunity to obtain that grail that they never grasped. Americans are worse, they are so much worse. Americans are defiantly ignorant! They take pride in being stupid. The stupider the better, they scream as they head for the Colorado River or Vegas on the weekend. They actually look down sneeringly on their betters who stopped dragging their knuckles long enough to pick up a book and actually read the thing. “Books are for losers!” the Moronicans scream. The Republican Party plays to the typical American idiot, swoons at his stupidity and feeds more raw retard meat by radio, TV and paper every hour of the day. The well-trained American imbecile laps up the stupid food like caviar and the Republican Party roars it’s approval. The Republican Party is all about stupid. That’s the very reason for its existence. It’s actively hostile to science, as fascists and even conservatives have typically been. An atheist would look at it this way: It’s stupid enough to believe religious fairy tales, but if you’re going to believe children’s fables, you may as well get it straight exactly what nonsense you guide your life by. Americans are so much worse. They swear by fairy tales to lead them through the day and the voting booth, but they can’t even tell you what tall tales they actually believe in. All they know is they believe in some fantastical nonsense, but they can’t even describe the nonsense that they believe in. But they believe in it anyway! How pitiful!
Forty-five percent of Roman Catholics who participated in the study didn’t know that, according to church teaching, the bread and wine used in Holy Communion is not just a symbol, but becomes the body and blood of Christ.
Wince! Even Catholics are dunces. It’s called transubstantiation, morons. Granted, the concept is seriously stupid, but it is official Church doctrine, for what it’s worth. Not surprisingly, White Southern Protestants were the dumbest Whites of all (LOL), but Black Protestants and Hispanic Catholics were both considerably dumber – 6
Less than half of Americans know that the Dalai Lama is Buddhist.
LOL, idiots. How could anyone not know that?Amazingly, even American Jews are retarded! But Jews are smart. Indeed they are, IQ-wise, but thrown into the wrecking yard of US culture, even Jewish brains start to wilt in the sun of stupid.
And about four in 10 Jews did not know that Maimonides, one of the greatest rabbis and intellectuals in history, was Jewish.
LOL, I thought Jews were smart or something. Guess I’ll have to go back and renew that theory. That Jewish quote is scary: it implies that merely living in America is bad for your brain. Ouch!
