“Wilfully ignorant, borderline heretical, self justification”
This is how Stephen Colbert describes Bill O’Reilly in an incredibly good skewering of the pop-Calvinist and smug materialist version of Christianity that dominates the American right. Remember, we have had these sanctimonious would-be Christians like Jim Demint and John Kyle complain about having to work over Christmas as “sacrilegious” and “disrespecting one of the two holiest of holidays for Christians”. I’ll tell you what’s sacrilegious and disrespectful- putting the economic interests of the rich over the poor. Refusing to extend unemployment benefits during a time of great need. Refusing the endorse the START treaty while celebrating the birth of the Prince of Peace. Giving the finger to the kids who would benefit from the DREAM Act.
The sanctimonious hypocrisy of these people knows no bounds. They have no shame whatsoever. Over to you, Mr. Colbert:
