Why doesn't it ever occur to them . . .

On Egalitarian blogs, C.S. Lewis is often extolled as a voice of reason (on subjects other than Priestesses, that is). Now, just this morning, I skimmed another post on yet another Egalitarian blog warning against the dulling of the mind and extolling the virtues of reading:

G.K. Chesterton

C.S. Lewis

Charles Spurgeon

John Flavel

Jonathan Edwards

This blog's owner is also a fan of Blaise Pascal.

So, my question is this:

Why does is never seem to occur to Egalitarians that NONE of their literary heroes would recognize Egalitarianism as even remotely orthodox?

Pascal would have probably burned most of them at the stake given half a chance. He wasn't much of a "peace-love-happiness" fellow from what I understand.

One would hope that perhaps a few of them WILL see the light eventually. Lewis did.
