Audio: (taking) Liberty (to make an agenda sound like credible) Counsel(ing)

by Jeremy Hooper

The far-right is continuing to flat-out lie about the so-called "American College of Pediatricians," deliberately ignoring the fact that Screen Shot 2010-04-15 At 8.43.53 Am-1ACOP is an ideologically-driven splinter organization out to A-ROB gays of rights. The far-right of course fails to make any acknowledgment of the group's fringe realities, because they want to make ACOP sound like a body of credible, unbiased science. Ya know, like the kind of organization that already exists under the name American Academy of Pedatrics.

Latest culprit in the deliberately and dangerously deceptive spin game: Matt Barber and Shawn Akers, who take to the Liberty Counsel's airwaves to laughably (read: enragingly) explain to all of us that there's "science and then there's politics." Listen in:

@7:24 : "[Homosexuality] is a genetic anomaly"

If by "anomaly," you mean something that is standard, normal, and scientifically expected in certain portions of every animal population.

@7:31: "This would be a genetic condition that led to an absolute inability to procreate. It would be a suicidal gene that would wipe out all of those that were born with it under natural normal circumstances."

Oh, you mean like the "suicidal gene" that can be found in the millions of "abnormal" men and women who are infertile for one reason or another? last time we checked, "suicide" means killing oneself. Genetic variation in the human population is not an act of self-murder: It would seem to be a natural balance, making room for both those who can/choose to reproduce, and those who can/choose to enhance the world for all who procreate within it.

@7:45: "Darwin didn't build in the adoption process in the lex talonis -- the law of the jungle"

Uhm, but apparently God built in the overpopulation process that, even with the presence of millions of 'mosexuals, continues to leave countless children without homes? It's just a good thing someone invented the adoption process, or else the unprepared or unwanted creations of 'rosexuals throughout millennia of history might have succumbed to more animalistic jungle laws!

@The Entire Thing: YOU. SOCIALLY. CONSERVATIVE. EVANGELICALS. DO. NOT. OWN. THE. WORLD! Stop trying to hijack the known world so that it only knows you and your own like-minded pals!
