Religious believers have quite the love/hate relationship with Albert Einstein. You'll often hear them quoting the physicist's comments about God not playing dice with the universe to support their own views – despite the fact that Einstein himself said, "I do not believe in a personal God." One young-Earth creationist site even uses an Einstein quote in a diatribe against evolution. Now the pendulum is swinging over to hate as Einstein goes the way of Darwin, becoming an unlikely Christian enemy.
"The theory of relativity is a mathematical system that allows no exceptions. It is heavily promoted by liberals who like its encouragement of relativism and its tendency to mislead people in how they view the world."
In a footnote, this comment is followed up by: "Virtually no one who is taught and believes relativity continues to read the Bible, a book that outsells New York Times bestsellers by a hundred-fold."

Why would relativity get in the way of believing in God? It's as silly as saying Newton's third law implies anything about karma. It's a physical relationship, not a metaphysical concept.

Hey even this evolution researcher (Dr. Hazen) admits that God could have created the Earth 6000 years ago, if he did it in a way to make it look like the dinosaurs were buried millions of years ago!
I don't think what they say is true that people who study Einstein don't believe in God, I'm sure there are exceptions.
Imagine that one longs for the days when the right-wing bigots still had some tether to rationality.
