of why leftists and Democrats seldom get things right.

David Lauter of the Los Angeles Times, referencing a Pew Research poll, suggests that politics drives religion.

While the poll (I read it in its entirety) merely reports the demographics of those who believe that man has existed in his present form from the beginning of time versus those who believe man has evolved over time, Lauter uses those benign numbers to opine that the individual's politics drives his religious preferences and beliefs.

The facts are that people of certain religious beliefs tend to be more conservative and, therefore, have a greater tendency to align themselves with the Repbulican party.

Conversely, secular individuals and those whose religious commitments are not strong have more of a tendency to align themselves with Democrats.

One can easily pick out the political leaning of the author by the way he makes egregiously incorrect assumptions about the findings of the poll.

The reporter "referenced" several other polls, too, in order to provide context for his article, which is not an opinion piece.

You seem to hate reported articles. Yet you have no gripes over opinion pieces coinciding with your own opinion that lack evidential support.

What a curious approach to citizenship.

The logical thing to do when confronted with facts that contradict your claim.

Indubitably egregious even.

Oh cruiser, you never fail to disappoint in your trolling ways.

There are several examples of how you're wrong. Documented and acknowledged. Now, I'm not going to say what they are. I want you to find them on your own.

Go on. Get to work.
