Religion is arrogant

Religious people just cannot see how arrogant and misinformed about reality they are. It manfests itself in seemingly humble people that say the most strident and arrogant ideas.


The Vatican's secretary of state has called the Irish vote to legalize gay marriage a "defeat for humanity," evidence of the soul-searching going on in Catholic circles after the predominantly Roman Catholic country overwhelmingly rejected traditional church teaching on marriage.
Cardinal Pietro Parolin said he was saddened by the landslide decision, in which more than 62 per cent of Irish voters said "yes," despite church teaching that marriage is only between a man and woman.

Compare and contrast my interpretation of a human defeat versus some strident and arrogant religious fool.
