C.E. Cupp is Ann Coulter before the bottle-blond crap is poured on her head, but maybe slightly less vile.1 She just came out with a new book: Losing Our Religion: The Liberal Media’s Attack on Christianity, which explains everything you had wrong if you were a progressive liberal in the education business. The book even comes with forward by Mike Huckabee.
Well, Steve Levingston of Political Bookworm on the Washington Post web site has reviewed the book, and seeing as how he does not have a lot of background in the Creationism vs Reality struggle, he interviewed Joshua Rosenau of the NCSE and Scienceblogs.com. So, Josh has a byline on that blog which you should go and read. A sample:
Cupp presents evolution — and science more generally — as the enemy of religion. Reporters’ “propping up of science,” she writes, is an “attack on Christianity.” If anything, it is Cupp’s approach which insults Christians. Research detailed in Elaine Ecklund’s forthcoming “Science vs. Religion,” shows that many scientists are religious themselves and do not generally regard science and religion as enemies.
