Respect for the gift of faith

I know George Weigel is popular in some circles. I find him arrogant and excessively pleased with himself. His latest column is a perfect example (“Way beyond the new atheist nonsense,” June 22). He is trying to defend the church but in the process makes himself foolish. He writes like such a “smarty pants” about those ignorant atheists who don’t have sense enough to realize “the Bible teaches us that God impressed his intelligibility onto the world through creation by the word.” And Lord knows when that happens, faith crumbles and you just fall into an intellectual playpen. Based on his columns, I think Mr. Weigel spends a lot of time in his own intellectual playpen. He acts like everything is just so self-evident, and of course only a fool would question what is real truth. Does he have no respect for the gift of faith?
