David Brooks (clearly neither a biblical scholar nor even really a reader of the Bible who bothers to pay attention to what it says), writes
In Corinthians, Jesus tells the crowds, “Not many of you were wise by worldly standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.”
I don’t know Mr Brooks’ educational background, but because he’s put his hand to the Bible in the sort of inept ignorance we usually only see in the papers of First Year students, I’m awarding him this week’s Dilly the Dilettante of the Week Award. ’Congratulations’.
