Conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza plead guilty Tuesday to breaking federal campaign finance laws.
Cue rude comments from the Left.
“I guess his faith didn’t help him, for according to New York’s Daily News, Dinesh D’Souza pleaded guilty to felony violations of campaign finance laws (he was originally charged with making false statements, but those charges were apparently dropped in the plea bargain),” Professor Jerry Coyne, a renown University of Chicago atheist, wrote on his popular Why Evolution Is True blog.
No surprise Coyne just couldn’t pass up the snide remark.
D’Souza served as a columnist for Christianity Today for about one year in 2009 and wrote What’s So Great about Christianity, which endeared him to conservative Christians, both Catholic and evangelical, Christianity Today reports.
What Coyne misses is that having “faith” doesn’t mean Christians don’t face tough times – some by their own making and others thrust upon them. And actually, it’s their “faith” that helps them through both kinds.
