the anti-intellectual arrogance of Ted Haggard

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

This video at YouTube of Richard Dawkins and Ted Haggard—from Dawkins’ The Root of All Evil documentary— is well worth viewing. There is a priceless exchange where Haggard accuses Dawkins of “intellectual arrogance,” as if anything were more arrogant than claiming that shallow knowledge of a single book makes one’s judgment intrinsically superior to the accumulated expertise of everyone who disagrees.

There is another, slightly longer, clip here.

(Thanks to Andrew Sullivan for the tip.)
