Who is most gullible about bad science?

Surprise!  Via Liberals”more resemble the uneducated conservatives” in gullibility about science.

Gauchat himself never asked why the liberals seem relatively impervious to change over time — they are today at about the same place as they were in 1974 — and why the liberals more resemble the uneducated conservatives and moderates in his cohort, who have also been relatively resistant to change. That is a mystery worth delving into.

This helps explain why.  If you agree with the bad science you are more likely to cling to it and lose your healthy skepticism.

It may be relevant that in recent years there has been a number of well-publicized science frauds and much embarrassing politicization of science. One would expect better educated people to be more aware of these problems than less educated ones.

As for why liberals continue to believe, many of the frauds ( Diedrik Stapel comes to mind here) appeared to support their views (indeed, in many cases, that was precisely the point of the temptation for the fraudsters). So it may not be that much of a mystery.

From the “I am not making this up category” . . .

I really wish I was making this up.  Public schools in California (yeah, it is a freak state, but many of these things spread to the rest of the country) are teaching children as young as 5 about how “normal” transgenderism is.  This is state sanctioned, taxpayer-funded child abuse.  I know this goes on, but it is always extra-creepy to see it on video.  To state the obvious, this is one more reason to seriously consider home-schooling.

From Coming to a Public School Near YOU?

Fox News covered a class full of kindergartners in California being taught that you can feel like a girl, feel like a boy, feel like both, or feel like neither.

. . .

The group brought in to teach children these lessons (allegedly to prevent bullying) is called Gender Spectrum.

“People can be girls, feel like girls, they can feel like boys, they can feel like both, and they can even feel, like I said, kinda like neither.”

Hey theological Liberals and wimpy orthodox Christians who caved to the political correctness of the gay lobby pressure instead of standing up for the truth: Congratulations, this is what you’ve enabled.   As predicted many times, this is a logical consequence of supporting civil rights for sexual preferences.

Remember, you don’t need to poison the minds of kids to teach them not to bully.  All you need is a simple and thoroughly enforced anti-bullying policy: If you physically or verbally harass other students on or off school grounds you will have swift and serious consequences. It doesn’t matter if you are bullying because they are gay/straight/fat/thin/smart/dumb/pretty/ugly/etc., or if it is just because you are a mean jerk. Lesson over.

Jim Wallis of Sojourners: Hypocrite. Race Baiter. False teacher.

1. Hypocrite: Wallis accuses others of lacking civility at the same time he says others want to “religiously assassinate” Barack Obama.  Can’t you just feel the love and tenderness?

An evangelical pastor described as Barack Obama’s spiritual adviser has accused Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News network of launching a calculated attempt to “religiously assassinate” the president.

Rev Jim Wallis, who has known the president for a decade, said some of the views expressed on the network made no attempt to stick to “truth and civility”. He also warned the opinions expressed on the channel were the reason nearly one in five Americans believed President Obama was a Muslim.

via Murdoch vs the President – Fox accused of faith slur campaign – Americas, World – The Independent.

Also, Wallis claims to be pro-life but takes donations from pro-abortion atheist George Soros and supports the most pro-abortion President ever.

2. Race baiter: As if we’d have all gone along with these ridiculous policies even if Hillary had been elected . . . race baiters like Wallis remind me of the Saturday Night Live skit where Eddie Murphy plays a white man who goes to a bank and “discovers” that white people give each money for free, but only charge interest to blacks.

He added that the right-wing Tea Party movement, whose support has snowballed since Obama entered the White House, only existed because the president was black.

Hey Jim, a couple questions:

– What is the rate of abortions in the black community with respect to the white community?  (Hint: It is three times as high)

– Will taxpayer-funded abortions, which Obama and you supported via the Stupak-less health care bill, increase or decrease that ratio?  (Hint: Increase)

– Couldn’t policies that result in many extra dead black human beings be considered . . . I don’t know . . . kinda racist?

3. False teacher: Wallis is on record for saying the Gospel is “all about” wealth redistribution.  That may be his “gospel” but it isn’t the Gospel of the Bible.

Shocking: Soros-funded Sojourners defends Soros

See Glenn Beck’s Offensive Attacks on George Soros – Valerie Elverton Dixon – God’s Politics Blog.

Then see Why did Liberal evangelical Jim Wallis lie about taking money from pro-abort atheist George Soros?

Then it will all make sense.  Hey, give me a few hundred thousand dollars and I might defend you.

Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis is a false teacher.

If George Soros likes and funds your evangelical Christian organization, it probably isn’t a real evangelical Christian organization.

Tea Party members uncover rampant voter fraud in Houston

See Citizens’ Group Helps Uncover Alleged Rampant Voter Fraud in Houston.  How (non-)surprising that the  perpetrator was a former employee of SEIU (Service Employees International Union), a big supporter and influencer of President Obama.

Most of the findings focused on a group called Houston Votes, a voter registration group headed by Sean Caddle, who also worked for the Service Employees International Union before coming to Houston. Among the findings were that only 1,793 of the 25,000 registrations the group submitted appeared to be valid.

The other registrations included one of a woman who registered six times in the same day; registrations of non-citizens; so many applications from one Houston Voters collector in one day that it was deemed to be beyond human capability; and 1,597 registrations that named the same person multiple times, often with different signatures.

Caddle told local newspapers that there “had been mistakes made,” and he said he had fired 30 workers for filing defective voter registration applications. He could not be reached for this article.

Remember, the Democrats don’t even want people to have to supply identification to vote.  Now why would that be?
