Idiots of the week: Matt Archbold and Andy Burnham
Archbold, a Catholic commentator, and Burnham, the Mayor of Manchester, qualify for this spot for observations made about atheism and Islam.
Archbold, writing for the National Catholic Register at the weekend, boldly declared:
Atheism is the Uncoolest Choice Ever, and I Can Prove It.
Among this twerp’s “8 Reasons Christianity is Cooler than Atheism” is that:
Religious people live longer, happier lives, according to numerous scientific studies.
Atheists have less children and that probably means … well you probably know what that means since you’re all about SCIENCE! Once again, to sum up, you’ll be miserable, have a shorter life, and quite likely less sex than your religious counterparts. And you thought atheism was cool? Reconsider and repent ye fools. Jesus said he is the way, the truth, and the life.
Left unsaid, is that He’s totally cooler than Richard Dawkins!
Archbold then juxtaposes an unflattering photo of Dawkins (“This is an extreme atheist”) with a sweet shot of the despicable Mother Teresa with an infant (“This is an extreme Christian”.)
Speaking to Nick Ferrari on LBC, he said:
The message that I would want to get over – and this is how the vast majority of people feel – this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim.
