Wake Forest Religion Prof Thinks Believing in God is Illogical and Immoral

“responsible for all the great suffering in the world”

This is what happens when progressives get involved in religion. They end up spending all their time trying to debunk it.

The Daily Caller reports:

Religion Prof Thinks Believing In God Is Illogical And Immoral

A Wake Forest University religion professor thinks it is not just illogical to believe in God, but also immoral, according to a Wednesday report.

Dr. Jarrod Whitaker specializes in South Asian religions at the North Carolina school and also allegedly asserted that belief in an objective truth “is the most tremendous evil that is responsible for all the great suffering in the world,” reported The Wake Forest Review.

The professor would perpetually “explain why Christian theology is problematic, racist, sexist, imperialist, and fundamentally evil,” Whitaker’s Catholic student John told the Review, who kept his identity concealed. “His point was specifically that Christianity is in a position of power, everything came down to who is in a position of power and how we can problematize that.”

“His position was that it was not only illogical to believe in God,” continued John. “He said that to believe in God is one of the most immoral things you can do, and to believe there is an objective Truth is the most tremendous evil that is responsible for all the great suffering in the world.”

Is Dr Whitaker stating an objective truth???

I initially misread the graphic for this article as “ridiculous studies”

Not just “illogical,” but “immoral” – a twofer!

Great job, Professor! You get the prize for incoherence!

Is it fattening, too?

(W.C. Fields said in one of his movies “According to you, everything I do is either illegal, immoral, or fattening!”)

“and also allegedly asserted that belief in an objective truth “is the most tremendous evil that is responsible for all the great suffering in the world,” ”

I guess he never heard of Pol Pot or Stalin . . .

    Akin to when I meet someone who states that there no absolute truth —-

    I usually ask, “Are you absolutely certain about that?”

    Most say, “Yes, absolutely.”

    The very(!) few thoughtful ones stop and rethink their answer; some few smile and say, “Good one, you got me there.” and others just get all huffy and change the subject.

I have a question.

If there is no God, how can anything, including belief in God, be immoral?
