Danielle Bean reports about how A. A. Gill, a food critic at Vanity Fair, has taken a stab at typical atheist writing (at the level of, “Ha, ha, Christians are stupid”), specifically targetiing the “Creation Museum” (whatever). Then, in an interview with Megan “I want to kill all Christiains” Fox, Gill takes on an upcoming appearance by Fr. John Corapi, CPA, STD, SOLT, in the Cincinnati area (even though the topic is the Church’s social teachings, not evolution). Again, his level of discourse amounts to calling our generation’s St. Augustine “Fr. Crappy.”
Here are the quotes from the most original source I can find:
“All this theoretical religious rubbish, it baffles me the amount of money and time invested in a conference with a priest ranting about an age old message that carries no basis or fact. Have these people opened a book in the past decade!? Who cares what message this man pretends to have, while he makes money off if (sic) it.”
So, charity for the poor is “theoretical religious rubbish”? Again, liberal secularists show their true colors.
I think it’s safer to say that Fr. Corapi’s listeners are far more likely to have “opened a book in the last decade” than most of Gill’s audience, especially the types who spend all their time watching Comedy Central or MTV.
“Surely there is nothing “Fr. Crappy” (referencing Fr. John Corapi) could possibly say that would affect me or the rest of humanity who, like me, have more than half a brain”
Since anti-Catholic bigotry usually coincides with ethnic bigotry against Irish, Italians and Slavs, it is notworthy that this dignified representative of secular atheist pseudo-intellectualism (aka he thinks like a thirteen year old) is not just insulting Fr. Corapi as a Catholic priest; he’s also making fun of Father’s Italian last name.
The obvious response to Mr. Gill is exactly what degrees *he* has, since Fr. Corapi is a CPA, served on the Nevada Gaming Commission, ran a multimillion dollar real estate business in Hollywood and has a doctorate from one of the most respected universities in Europe.
