Word salad

No baco-bits. Here's the opening graf of a post titled "Missionaries and the secular mafia: A reality check" at a blog called "Paganism" ("Another excellent weblog"):
The Christian evangelist zeal has in fresh years acquired a different collegiate dimension. The activity to ruin tribals from their ancestral roots and force an uninstructed about approach of duration has the damned blessings of our mundane journalists. Harvard sociologist Pitrim Sorokin observes: “During the any pass–í not altogether centuries the most hostile, the most bellicose, the most wolfish, the most power-drunk fraction of Homo sapiens has been correctly, the Christian Western period. During these centuries western Christendom had invaded all other continents; its armies followed before priests and merchants clothed subjugated, robbed or pillaged most of the non-Christians.
The piece mentions Ward Churchill:
Tribal groups clothed been marginalized in every nook the monotheistic period. Until 1824, fatality American Indians was not a outrage, as reflected in the saying: “the contrariwise hoard Indian is a depths Indian.” Ward Churchill, professor of ethnic studies, University of Colorado, celebrated that the reduction of the North American Indian natives from an estimated 12 million in 1500 to conduct 237,000 in 1900 represents a “vast genocide., the most steady on best performance.” Right Wing Christian apologists demand supernal providence; a appropriate genocide from stem to stern smallpox and bother to which the natives were pathologically unprotected with no arrange inoculation.
It has to be machine-generated, doesn't it? But machine-made or not, that old saying, "the contrariwise hoard Indian is a depths Indian," is deep.
