The problem with conservative atheist author S.E. Cupp is that she doesn’t care about telling the truth.
She thinks people’s beliefs automatically deserve respect no matter how untrue or harmful they may be. So when atheists call out religious people for their incorrect views? When people point out what Mitt Romney believes as a Mormon? We’re the problem, says Cupp, not the people who hold the faulty religious beliefs.
She’s an atheist who doesn’t see a problem with religion. No wonder most atheists (and liberals) can’t stand her.
Case in point: Watch this clip of her appearing on the Christian Broadcasting Network and try not to roll your eyes:
The most telling part for me is when the host asks her why Catholics court nominees (or politicians), for example, seem to get a pass on faith, while Pentecostals get hammered on it.
The right answer: Because most Catholic politicians don’t really care what the Church says. They’re not puppets of the Pope. They know how to think for themselves, on the whole. Pentecostals, on the other hand, take their faith very seriously. They talk to God before making decisions. They listen to voices in their head that don’t exist. They look for “signs” that aren’t there. It would be crazy to give someone with that level of delusion that much power.
Cupp’s answer: Because “the liberal media doesn’t really handle nuance well.” (?!?)
