Ha! I don’t read the Onion all that much because their bias tends to annoy me, but this was a delightful bit of satire, “Scientists Discover Dangerous Link Between Book Learnin’, Back Talk.”
Right? Reading is a powerful tool that enables critical thinking and helps to prevent indoctrination, brainwashing, and blindly subscribing to cultural norms and ideologies.
Read the bible for yourself too, and then you will be armed with plenty of back talk for when the world comes at you or the enemy tries to chew on you. It’s incredible how those concepts and words get written on the tablet of your heart and will come to you right when you need them.
