To whom also he shewed himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle.

And their eyes were opened, and they knew him;

37 Percent of People Completely Lost

As a liberal (progressive) of/with higher education, my disgust while reading this (blind, but supposedly enlightened) diatribe only grew.  From Jesus Christ pictured on a dinosaur to “religion as parable/myth” to “Jesus literally flew up out of a cave and into the sky” to “Here is the body of Jesus,” Mark Morford succeeded in revealing himself to be just as hypocritical, ignorant, abusive, and lost as most of those he so gleefully sought to ridicule in a public forum.

Numerous “university professors and scientists [who] identify as Democrat/progressive” also believe in Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and God.  To them, “reading” the Bible is taken as a “complex” journey – where the literal, figurative, allegorical, and poetic language within collected stories of those obviously inspired and guided beyond earthly possibilities enhances their “critical” and “analytical” “thinking,” while also lifting spiritually.

Along these lines, how many people are mocked throughout history?  From the most common to the most prominent, to him it would seem that followers of Moses were laughingstock material, just as those who were willing to be crucified (or burned to death, etc.) in the name of Jesus.  For believing, was Thomas Jefferson another idiot for joke routines?  What about Lincoln?  Was Martin Luther King a fool to be mocked for rising to such levels based on cartooned centers?  For any that do believe (simply or complexly), to him the answer is clearly “yes” – regardless of “infallible proofs” (Acts 1:3) or any other truths.

Note: Not all Christians are behind the times in intellectual development (i.e., thinking the earth was created 6,000 years ago: 2 Peter 3:8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.).

Note: Not all Christians attack atheists with vitriol and half-wit monikers/denunciations.

And still, a prayer: may Mark have an experience along different lines:
‘New Atheists’ and Evolution

And then, when he has been “[led] straight to” “a more open-minded” view than he ever imagined, may he experience all the necessary paths (from a bottomless void) of seeking forgiveness and true enlightenment that long lines of soulless derision require.

Obviously, some “Liberals [do actually] hate God [or will go to any extremes to deny His existence].”  “Was it a terribly elitist and unkind thing to say?  Sort of.”
