I am not sure what the resistance against javascript in general is.

javascript allows to let certain parts of the code being executed in the 
client instead of the server. This allows a smoother user experience 
(i.e. not every user interaction requires a new page being rendered). Do 
you need this for every application - no. However, it can increase the 
usability, to allow i.e. auto-completion of your input.
