Great Quote: Camille Paglia

Author, intellectual, and cultural critic, Camille Paglia, is outspoken about her atheism, feminism, and homosexuality but is also a frequent critic of all of these things. Here is a typical quote from The Morning News interview with Robert Birnbaum (Aug. 2005):

“So I am very concerned about the cultural future of the United States in this kind of environment. Most people who are secular humanists having the idea that they are doing fine. We are doing fine and our only enemy is the Bible-based far right. The reason why the real threat is the far right is that they have the Bible. And the Bible is a masterpiece. The Bible is one of the greatest works produced in the world. The people who all they have is the Bible actually are set up for life. Not only do they have a spiritual vision given to them but artistic fulfillment. They don’t even recognize just the pleasure of dealing with this epic poetry and drama. Everything is in the Bible. What does the left have? The left has a lot of attitude.”

    Wow…most people who are in direct rebellion of God’s Word find reasons to reject it, but she views the Bible as a masterpiece. At least it can be said that Camille is a very honest secular humanist!

    Hi, Bill. Great blog with great design, of course. As for Ms. Paglia, Truth trumps attitude any day. Some of us are blessed enough to have both! Keep it up, my friend.

    Well – hats off to Ms. Paglia for having the intestinal fortitude to acknowledge the strength of her “enemy”. God’s word is alive and powerful – undeniably so.
