Atheist Professor Mocks D’Souza’s Christian Faith In Wake of Guilty Plea

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.

    Oh, how sad. Anyone that actually went to this “Café” should have their ignorant butt kicked. Che Guevara was a murdering pile of trash that is probably burning in hell as we speak.

    If this wasn’t people on a left-wing campus, they’d call it a “teachable moment”. It certainly fits the definition better than most things.

    I suggest that some professors, esp. in the business or economics programs there, take their classes on a little field trip to the ‘ole Cafe and use it as a lesson. Namely, here’s the endgame of Communist economies in microcosm. Observe how run-down and poor the place is, how uncompetitive it is in a larger market, and how apathetic its operators seem to act. Note how its operators are forced to become capitalists in all but name to merely survive because the business will totally collapse otherwise. See how they appeal to external authority (in this case the University) to MAKE people give them their money because they cannot get it any other way.

    You could build an entire class around Communist vs. capitalist economics & politics from this place. It would certainly make the topic a lot more vivid for the average person.

    Never ceases to amaze me when I see someone wearing one of those Che T-Shirts. Might as well wear Hitler, Stalin or Mao. What idiots.
