Enlightened Obscurantism

The third installment of Bernard-Henri Lévy's journey through America, "In the Footsteps of Tocqueville," has this to say about intelligent design:
"There are two theories, and you have a choice: that's the formula of an enlightened obscurantism; that's the principle of revisionism with a liberal and tolerant face; that's the act of faith of a dogmatism reconciled with freedom of speech and thought; that's the subtlest, most underhanded, most cunning, and at bottom most dangerous ideological maneuver of the American Right in years."
