And this is why we don't actually try to engage them intellectually.

Over at Scott Tribe's, here's commenter "Roll Tide" showing up with an attitude and a boatload of ignorance:

Kairos has a history of not only anti Israel activities, but siding with the hard left on a host of issues. It ought to be defunded from the taxpayer.

Within four minutes, Scott brings the reality:

“Mr. Kenney is confused. He is confusing the “Kairos Palestine Document” with Kairos Canada. As far as I can tell from information readily available on the internet, these are two different creatures and unrelated. Kairos is a word used by a number of different organizations names. Mr. Kenney needs to do his homework.”

Having almost a full 24 hours to absorb this new information, Roll Tide drops in again:

Mark my word. Christian Reformed Church (CRC) funding of Kairos will be history. I know too many CRC members (my in laws for one) that had no idea their denomination was funding such a extreme ultra left wing political group. This is a case of Synod slipping one by its membership. Grand Rapids will have a hot potato next summer.

To paraphrase an old saying, trying to educate a wanker is like trying to teach a pig to sing. It's a waste of time, and it annoys the pig.

AFTERSNARK: It's fascinating how only hard left activities should be "defunded from the taxpayer." Have you noticed that? I've noticed that. I'm sure it's not just a coincidence.

Oh, but come on, CC. It's the well-defined, instantly-recognizable hard left. Surely you can't defend a group from that charge.

Like that Jesus guy. Always providing welfare handouts and free health care. Can you imagine anything more leftist?
