Some good news from the I am not making this up category — The NY Times published a balanced front-page article on pro-lifers and even included photos of aborted babies. “Pro-lifers are portrayed as smart, convicted, and compelling.” Wow!
Carlotta [check out her new blog format!] had a good summary of President Obama’s speech to the Human Rights Campaign, a pro-gay “rights” group. Obama’s comments on oxymoronic same-sex marriage were not surprising, even though they contradict his campaign rhetoric and are 180 degrees different than God’s view on the matter:
You will see a time in which we as a nation finally recognize relationships between two men or two women as just as real and admirable as relationships between a man and a woman.
It shows how low we’ve sunk that someone could make such a statement and be taken seriously by part of the population.
Richard Dawkins cites fraudulent research, runs from public debate — Why won’t he debate Stephen Meyers?
Darwinian fundamentalist Ernst Haeckel’s embryo drawings were discredited as a fraud in the 19th century.
Yet they remained in high school textbooks for many decades and were used without criticism by Dawkins in a 2008 video! What utter dishonesty. He has to know how fraudulent they were. Apparently he hasn’t evolved to see the benefits of honesty. But you can totally trust what he writes in his books, right?
His [Dawkins’] popular brand of invincible ignorance coupled with foam-flecked fanaticism sells a lot of hymnals written for the kool-aid drinking choir. It’s not about science, it’s about creating your own private world where everyone is stupid except you. Dawkins is a self-help author for those raised by fundamentalist parents. It’s escapism. And if anyone asks them to debate, they can just deploy some insults and call it a day. Whatever sells books, right?
Dawkins does remind me a bit of Homer Simpson (“Everyone is stupid except me”).
Did you know that artificial breasts for a transexual are a “human right” as well?
A transsexual refusedon the NHS is to take her [sic] case to the High Court, at a cost of tens of thousands of pounds to the hospital’s budget.
The legally aided gender dysphoria sufferer, who has been living as a woman for over 10 years, saysis essential to her [sic] female identity and emotional well-being and the refusal to give her [sic] the op amounts to sex discrimination.
Fulfilling that right via socialized medicine is way more important than pesky little problems like this one:
An 80-year-old grandmother who doctors identified as terminally ill and left to starve to death has recovered after her outraged daughter intervened.
Hazel Fenton, from East Sussex, is alive nine months after medics ruled she had only days to live, withdrew her antibiotics and denied her artificial feeding. The former school matron had been placed on a controversial care plan intended to ease the last days of dying patients.
