He sounds like how I used to sound 2 1/2 years ago when I was a Fundamentalist. Everything modern, postmodern or intellectual is some sort of stealthy, pernicious attack on Christianity. Everything is some subliminal plot by the "intellectual elites" to deceive the masses.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
Exactly where did I blame or accuse things "modern," especially for being an attack on Christianity? I quoted y Gassett, not Galatians. I used the words and thoughts of those quite definitely not of the religious right, and I did not distort them nor breathlessly accuse them of pernicious motives and of taking over anything (a common tactic of both sides of most religiopolitical arguments, a tactic I find saddening).
Sounds like he's saying that Modern Art is a plot to set up a New World Order ruled by intellecutal elites. I bet he'll be saying next that artists will team up to make creative, sublimial advertisements for Mark of the Beast chips
Looks like you lost your bet,but it's easy to make such bets when there's no penalty, no responsibility for being wrong.
