A Leiter shade of ignorance …

as well as A Leiter Case for the Superfluousness of Religious Liberty | Online Library of Law and Liberty. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

[Leiter] spends three paragraphs, for example, dismissing Thomistic thought, betraying a stunningly shallow understanding of it and summarily concluding that there are no “lines of thought that converge on the conclusion that one should affirm a transcendent cause.” Never mind Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas, Pascal, Descartes, Leibniz, Kant, and Newman, much less leading contemporary heirs to their project.
