James F. McGrath, professor of religion at Butler University in Indiana is an ideal example of why I’m rarely impressed by the thought processes of those entrenched in the ivory towers of this country (note I don’t lump all professors into this category, but Dr. McGrath is clearly one who fits the bill).
