As time goes by, I understand why my grandfather loved this expression so much:

Stupidity is a commodity given out by God, in great abundance

Gene Mills:
You know what they say: “You can lead a secular humanist to evidence, but there’s no guarantee that critical thinking will occur.”

I have to admit, I've never heard that old saying before.

It was a new one on me, too!

Must be a La. Family Forum old saying.

Alinsky again? It looks like the Fright-wing have run out of Jews to blame for the rise of science "secular-progressivism".

When in doubt blame Alinsky.

Umm, "Saul Alinsky" doesn't sound Baptist to me.

These things have phases. A few years ago, it was common for yokel candidates here in West Texas to call their opponents "ultra-liberals," no matter how conservative the opponent might actually be. One unfortunate candidate tried "hyper-liberals" but too many voters failed to understand the etymology.
It's SOP for candidates here to declare themselves the "true conservative" (pronounced "consurrrhf-tif,") as opposed to RINOs, libs, and now Alinsky types like their opponents. Today, "Saul Alinsky" (sometimes abbreviated as "Solinsky") is the standard bogeyman, to such an extent that the average slack-jaw might suppose that he ranked with Marx, Lenin, or FDR as a leader of Red subversion.

The real Saul Alinsky was not even a socialist, let alone a communist, and his methods have been used by groups across the political spectrum. Ironically, they appear to be most in use by the tea party movement itself these days. The late William F. Buckley Jr. said Alinsky was "very close to being an organizational genius."
