This is just nonsense.  I listen to a lot of Jordan's stuff and I'm an athiest.  He does talk about Christianity though and is a Christian but he talks more about Christian mythmaking etc and the moral value and lessons in their stories and whatnot.

And many, if not most are Christians I believe. The political right are Christians believers more often than not.

I didn't know you were a wannabe intellectual if you listen to the man's perspectives.  Thanks!  Like squiggy said i think you're reading the room wrong.  You clearly are a staunchly leftwing and don't like his views, therefore he and people who listen to him are simpleton retardos to you.

I'm definitely leftist as that pertains to Canadian standards but not leftwing. If I was an American you could correctly say I'm leftwing.
I don't consider anybody to be retarded due to their political leaning. But I do consider many rightist views to be wrongheaded and incorrect. Not all, but it would take a calm and nuanced conversation to sort out my pros from my cons.

I'm a bit disappointed in you when you use a word like 'retardos'. However, for now at least I'm still interested in building bridges with you.
It was believed afterward that the man was a lunatic, because there was no sense in what he said. ~M.T.
