    up in South Louisiana in the early fifties I can guarantee that upwards of 90 percent of the white population was either lying about their belief in God or were lying about their attitudes regarding race.

    Perhaps this guy can explain all the Christian academies that sprung up in the South after integration became the law of the land. Only the blatantly dishonest or hopelessly naive would claim that they were created for reasons other than avoiding having to send their "good Christian children" to school with African Americans.

    Just because he thinks that racism is incompatible with the idea of a benevolent God does not mean everyone shares that view.

    Since I believe that the idea of eternal hell is inconsistent with the idea of a benevolent God, then by his reasoning I should conclude that  anyone who believed in hell would have to be an atheist which is of course incoherent.

    It is hard to imagine anyone being this naive and even this  immature in their thinking. This is the sort of reasoning one might expect from a twelve year old.
