Rick Perry isn’t afraid of his own ignorance
I don’t think that faith is a sign of weakness: I think it’s a sign of an uninformed mind, reliant on ancient superstitions to give them a false sense of security and strength. Does it surprise me that people would believe? No. Ignorance is perfectly natural, incredibly persistent, and seemingly infinite. Those that flaunt this ignorance as a form of power and inspiration is what annoys me the most. Do I want to live in a future where faith is a virtue? Certainly not.
