If Ignorance is Bliss, Why Aren’t Americans Happier?

Nicholas Kristof’s column in yesterday’s New York Times laments the lack of knowledge many Christians evidence regarding their own Scriptures.  Kristof also challenges secular Americans to seek greater knowledge about the religions of others.

Before I explicitly respond to his column, let me share a story. Its relevance I’ll make apparent later.

More Evil From Uncle Google

evil google Uncle Google, that paragon of hypocrisy, has done it again.  When videos of Jewish interest get posted on YouTube, antisemitic diatribes follow in the comments, often in the form of Israel-bashing, often filled with obscenities and half-baked misunderstandings. Uncle Google doesn’t mind this.  Neither does it mind posts of deceptive Israel-bashing videos. But truthful and effective pro-Israel videos are censored for “terms of service” violations.  The latest victim is video # wU221GA5-u8 Read the rest of this entry »
