Focus on Your Own Darn Family

Hopefully, our promotion of critical thinking and science training will help protect our community from nuts like James Dobson. Here are three examples of the Reverend quote mining research and science to promote his ideological position against homosexual families and gay marriage. This confirms Christopher Hitchens’ statement that one may commit any crime or say anything under the title reverend; moreover, we are enlightened own how certain religious thinking may lead to complete immoral and bigoted behavior. Dobson must think it is ethical to lie for Jesus. (We saw Ben Stein lie for Yahweh).

Here are the scientists own comments from truth wins outs:

There are very good and powerful. I think most people ignore Dobson but I rarely hear him challenged. I am going to contact truths wins out and see if I can download a higher resolution version and ask for permission to play them on The Enlightenment television show.

As long as we are on the topic of homosexual rights and the right wing agenda. PZ Meyers blogged about yet another copy and replace error from far right groups. I am sure most of us are familiar with the Discovery Institute “Cdesignpropendtsists” copy and paste mistake from creation to design proponents in “Of Panda’s and People.” (BTW that book is dead due to the Dover trial. The next evolution in propaganda books is “Explore Evolution.” You can google it. I don’t want to link to that website.)

The new copy mistake is from The American Family Association and takes the word “gay” and replaces it with “homosexual.” That does funny things when someone’s last name is Gay. Take a look at the article it is worth a laugh. I wonder why they replace gay with homosexual. Is that more scholarly or politically correct?
