Norm MacDonald Tweets That Most People Study Scripture, Because They're "Smart;"
Atheists Attack

Someone got his nose bent out of joint because some golfer mentioned (on a golf broadcast) that he studied Scripture.

Oh my Gosh that's terrible. We're Almost A Theocracy (TM).

Norm MacDonald tweeted back, reasonably...

What's surprising about that? Don't most people study the scriptures?

After making the point that most people are in fact religious and study Scripture, and many people are "smart," atheists got on him for saying The Worstest Thing Ever and he deleted his Tweets, though Twitchy still has them.

Religious people get a bad name because of the Church Lady Syndrome -- the person who seems to believe in God not because God is the Creator but because believing in God makes the believer superior to those around her (I say "her" because of the Church Lady). Thus, far from a Church Lady Type giving glory to God, God gives glory to the Church Lady Type.

However, it's becoming more and more obvious every day-- if it weren't already obvious -- that this particular indulgence of the ego isn't part of the religious mindset. It's part of the human mindset. You can see it in the Anti-Church Ladies of the Evangelical Atheists who do their own Superiority Dances over their righteous nonbelief in the Deity.

Some seem to believe that a professed atheism automatically makes one enlightened and rational, and rational, moreover, in a specific way: Freed of the childish belief that simply speaking certain Magic Words makes one a better and smarter person.

But it plainly does not. Better-thinking religious people must be occasionally embarrassed by their Church Ladies; are any atheists embarrassed by their own Anti-Church Ladies?
