You will NEVER guess whos coming to *my* campus in January!
Robert P. George!
You know who this guy is, even if you dont ‘know’ who he is– he was one of the founders of ‘National Organization for Marriage’, of ‘GATHERING STORM!‘ infamy.
The guy is a putrid douchebag.
Why the hell would this fruitcake be speaking on a medical university campus? Well, the Baptist Student Fellowship of Christian Medical Dental Christian Pharmacist Association invited him to speak on “Science, Philosophy, and Religion in the Embryo Debate.”
George has no scientific training. He has performed no scientific research in his entire life. He is not a medical professional in any way. It would make more sense for them to have invited past/current SciBlog ethics/philosophy bloggers instead of this guy.
But I guess the point is, the Baptist Student Fellowship of Christian Medical Dental Christian Pharmacist Association arent exactly ‘interested’ in having an honest discussion about what happens when their personal interpretation of their chosen religion conflicts with modern science, modern laws, and modern ethics.
Whatever, their money. Its open to all of us… but I dont know if Im going to be able to stomach this guy, even for the lulz. Ill try if you all want me to. Though Im pretty sure I can guess right now what hes going to talk about.
Shorter Robert P. George lecture:
“I have done nothing productive with my life, and I cannot contribute positively to society, so Im going to tear down the blood, sweat, and tears of successful people to make myself feel important. No one is going to call me on this bullshit because I call my behavior ‘religion’, I pretend ‘religion’ has anything to do with ‘ethics’, and society accepts that.”
Ugh *shudder* gross.
