It's hard to believe that anyone could be so parochial. According to this piece, Andy Rooney actually told college students in Massachusetts, speaking of religion, that "I think it's all nonsense.'' According to Rooney, Christian fundamentalism is a result of "a lack of education. They haven't been exposed to what the world has to offer."

Given the scores and scores of erudite, educated Evangelical ministers, it's mind-boggling to think that Rooney might actually believe such short-sighted drivel. Clearly, it's time for him to meet John Stott, and many, many others.

So much for the blue state sophisticates.

While it's hard to believe that *most* people could be so parochial, it's not hard to believe this of Andy Rooney. ;)

Is he still a commentator on 60 Minutes? (I haven't seen that show in over a decade.) Perhaps we could put a little pressure on CBS. Again.
