Reverend Jeremiah is Losing It

It's well worth a stop at his blog to marvel at the alteration in tone. Much of his past sanctimony has now given way to ranting about "Nazi indoctrination," "Commie left-wingers" and the manifold ills of public education. Because you know that nasty NEA is to blame for out-of-control fraternity hazing...they start teaching that in kindergarten, right? Just about when they begin to push the atheist/gay/liberal agenda on those unsuspecting kidlets who only think they're learning their ABCs and 123s.

But I was particularly struck by this passage, from a Sunday, November 9 post (all typos are original):
History, which I am pretty much illiterate on, as I am on most subects. My education went in one ear and out the other...I just didn't have the patience to sit and study, combined with my very timid nature in social settings; making it very difficult for me to learn, but I made it to gain a high school diploma. It is a miracle that I am sitting her typing this today.
A rare moment of candor, this.

It's schadenfreude to read, of course. But we've earned it.

I think this might be the best, most truthful, thing he has ever wrote.

I had him pegged as well, Count. A lack of intelligence combined with blind faith. Now at least, he's admitted to the lack of intelligence part. A lesson in humility taught to him by the defeat of his beliefs in the election? That the election has taught him that the world wasn't truly in his corner after all? Who knows? I think that the old smug swaggering Jeremiah will be back before too long. Its been too easy for religious extremists to change thier focus to something else and begin to attack that cause as the reason for thier loss. They need some group or some cause to hate. Without it, they have no reason to live.
