Wisdom From the Wall Street Journal


Naomi Schaefer Riley reviewing the book “Atheist Awakening” for yesterday’s Wall Street Journal:

“The vast majority of the unaffiliated are not atheists as such. They are simply disaffected and indifferent, and many are uneducated about religious doctrine. They have no biblical literacy and embrace the shallow postmodern notion that good behavior is relative and that being ‘judgmental’ is the big problem in life…

“The authors astutely cite a passage from G.K. Chesterton’s 1909 novel ‘The Ball and the Cross,’ which tells the story of a Catholic and an atheist involved in repeated confrontations. At one point, the atheist says: ‘This man and I are alone in the modern world in that we think God is essentially important.'”
