Is it any surprise academia leans left toward secularism and more socially compassionate views? The alternative, which is what the right reminds us this country was founded upon, is religion and all it’s baggage of conflicting morality and unverifiable tall tales. The latter is how we (as a country) got to January 6th, 2021. I believe when you have a large, uneducated segment of the population that still believes in theological fallacies, they are ripe for political indoctrination as well. If you can buy into virgin births, talking fiery bushes, and big animal boats while the God you worship douches the rest of humanity, you’re more likely to believe a conman when he tells you an election was stolen. Blind faith, my sheep.
