The question remains, is David Brooks an idiot or a moron?
Anyway, today Bobo gives us a scolding moral lesson using Jeremy Lin of all people:
Jeremy Lin is anomalous in all sorts of ways. He’s a Harvard grad in the N.B.A., an Asian-American man in professional sports. But we shouldn’t neglect the biggest anomaly. He’s a religious person in professional sports.
We’ve become accustomed to the faith-driven athlete and coach, from Billy Sunday to Tim Tebow. But we shouldn’t forget how problematic this is. The moral ethos of sport is in tension with the moral ethos of faith, whether Jewish, Christian or Muslim.
So did you get that? Lin is an anomaly that we’ve become accustomed to.
Does Brooks even read his own column?
