Hmnn wrong. Usually when people present lazyness as a reason for ignorance what they mean is a lack of a proper position of their own and they are annoyed it got discarded as it deserved, ooooor they don't get that a lack of rational scepticism is rooted in a lack of intelligence, not actual lazyness.
I really fail to see how the world is becoming politically correct. In case you haven't noticed, I can see women's ankles any time I want and a good half of the Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television can be said on television.
I never quite think of willful obtuseness as the "cardinal sin" that is willful ignorance, but it is a major annoyance. Part of why I could never get much into critical theory or post-modern art crit. I suppose political doublespeak falls into the same category as well.
But...but...curb stomping fools is SO MUCH FUN!!!!
In truth, I see your point, and I've gotten used to people not understanding certain aspects of the Bible. Though my rant wasn't entirely fueled by my faith, that did play a large part of it. What irritates me is when people make assumptions that could be found quite easily with a little research.
I just learn to let things pass and let God deal with it, as another wise man told me, "Life decisions belong to God" I will explain this and to keep it on topic. A person may behave, and seem like they will end up living a life of ignorance, but God has the last say, so what is happening now may not happen in the future. God can completely take that persons life and spin it 180 degrees. So in the end this ignorant person may end up with a stronger testimony that can turn people to the faith. If a person does not want to hear it from you, just let God deal with it, they will listen to him.
((I may have went off topic there so forgive me but I tried to keep it on "Ignorance".))
