Feisty Box Turtle refuses to let go

by Jeremy Hooper

200803040943-1-1Remember how Focus on the Family's Glenn Stanton was representing the field of anthropology in a way that made it seem irrefutably gay-exclusive? Yea, well, Box Turtle Bulletin has stuck on that case like a horny dog on a fire hydrant-colored, Purina-covered pants leg. And as part of those on-going attempts to hold Stanton's feet to the fire, the feisty mutts have today posted a very in-depth critique of Mr. Stanton's views from actual biological anthropologist Patrick M. Chapman. Check it out at link:

An Anthropologist Critiques Focus on the Family’s “Anthropological” Report on Marriage [BTB]

In coming days, BTB has promised that they'll also post a response from Mr. Stanton himself. Here's hoping he'll fele free to utilize his innate human ability to admit when he is wrong, rather than adhering only to a one-sided mindset that filters true anthropology through a conveniently heterosexist lens.

**UPDATE, 3/27: Glenn Stanton has responded: Glenn T. Stanton Responds to Professor Patrick Chapman [BTB]

;-) It's true too, Dan. You boys' focus and followup is admirable.

wow Loved Dr, Chapman's analysis. Probably because it was thoughtfully written, and polite. He made FoF look horrid, although that isn't hard in my opinion.
