Would You Believe? Abie Philbin Bowman's Simplistic and Blinkered Approach to Life

Mick Peelo's interview with  with atheist comedian Abie Philbin Bowman was particularly enlightening in a number  of  respects. Abie was not baptised and attended the  non denominational Sandford Park school. Therein lies the genesis of his antagonism to Catholicism.
  •  Why is it that pseudo liberals persistently target the Catholic Church?  Bowman took a cheap shot at Pope Emeritus Benedict. He referred to his "shadowy Nazi past". This is an ugly smear much beloved of  intolerant liberals. It  is factually incorrect. In fact Benedict as a 14 year old was CONSCRIPTED. In 1941, one of Joseph  Ratzinger's cousins, a 14-year-old boy with Down syndrome, was taken away by the Nazi regime and murdered during the Action T4 campaign of Nazi eugenics.  The Ratzinger family detested the Nazis.
  • For a  man so intelligent, his approach to life is simplistic. As far as he is concerned life can be explained by the Big Bang and Evolution. He does not believe in life after death. It's all so simple as far as Abie is concerned. Except it is not. How does he think the  Big Bang came about? Some Mastermind (God) had to cause it. It could not have come about itself. The complexity of the Universe and Solar  System  and human beings could not have come about by chance. God is the Creator- the Master Architect.
  • He referred to George Bush as a "bit of an idiot". George Bush prevented any further Al Qaeda attacks  in the US in the wake of 9/11. He strongly opposed the destruction of unborn life.
    Asked directly what President has done more than any other to combat AIDS,  Elton John answered without hesitation: "George Bush." President Bush  launched  the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) a $15 billion program Bush signed into law in 2004 to provide treatment and prevention for millions of HIV-infected people in Africa.  Not bad for a " bit  of an idiot". 
  • In one of his jokes he attacked the American medical establishment. He claimed that although Al Qaeda killed 3,000 American citizens, the numbers killed in the same  country by prescription drugs and medical errors exceeded 3,ooo in a week. He forgot  to mention that over 3,000 unborn children are murdered by abortion in the US DAILY. Then of course liberals never like to  refer to this.   Of course the liberal god Obama was not singled out for ridicule.
  • He referred to the  Protestant countries of Germany, Scandinavia, Holland bailing out the Catholic countries of Ireland and  Portugal.  Interestingly he forgot to mention  the  gigantic economic crash in the Protestant country of the US in 2007/2008 . This sent shock wakes across the globe. The US national debt is now 17 TRILLION Dollars. It is out of control driven by the liberal President Obama. He has raised the US national debt from 9 Trillion dollars in 2009 to 17 Trillion dollars in 2013.
  • The reality is that  Abie has the typical blinkered liberal approach to life.  He has a superficial knowledge of politics. To put it mildly that is being charitable.    His arguments against religion are deeply flawed.  In short his horizons are limited. Now of course that is not unusual for some  Dublin  liberals.
