EEEEEW. NOMNOMNOMNOM!

EEEEEEEEEW!

You will NEVER guess whos coming to *my* campus in January!

Robert P. George!

AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

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.

    You’ve got better things to do with your time than try to stem the flow of garbage.

    Ignorance requires no effort that’s why it’s so popular.

    Counter demo? I suggest throwing dead fetuses at him. No, NOT human fetuses! BUT something that looks human. He’s an idiot – he’ll never know. Or perhaps starting up the old duelling idiots game? Maybe the Phelps clan is not booked that day – I’m sure this guy is going to hell in their book, so that could be fun too!

    Of course it would be best to just show him the science, but he is undoubtedly blinded by his faith to reality, so what the hell.

    But it’s good to have options.

    I object to his use of the name, as I objected to someone else in national view who used it.

    No need to poison your brain going to his lecture. Why do that to yourself?

    That is one funny video. George Takai’s appearance was what clued me into the fact that it was a parody.

    It’s a pretty sad world when parody is so hard to distinguish from real Christian ranting.

    Now I have to pour brake fluid in my eyes to get the images out…

    Have a nice day.

    Forget him. The “Embryo Debate” will be way more interesting, ’cause those mofo’s can talk some trash.

    If you go, you should wear a shirt that says “Marriage is totally gay” or something to that effect. Don’t be counted among their numbers.

    Janice, it’s “Takei”. Rhymes with “doc gay”. (Only technically don’t finish the diphthong in “gay”).

    Yes, people do accuse me of pedanticness, but I always point out that the correct word is “pedantry”. But it’s important to me because I got to meet Mr. Takei and his husband right after they were married, and give him a short tour of a small part of NASA (and say “congratulations”). So even though he has no idea who I am, I consider him a friend. Cause I’m not just a pedant, I’m a stalker pedant!

    Damn BSFCMDCPA….. wait, is this group for real or did someone get some scrabble titles for an early Christmas gift? I wonder if this group is Christian, because its not quiet clear from their name. After all the word “Christian” only accounts for 2 of the 9 words. If they were real Christians the ratio would be much higher.

    I can probably tell you his speech right now: “Oogity Boogity Boo. Homos! Save the babies. America. Jesus Christ. Homos. BOO!” Although he might not be as elegant.

    If you go, likely you will join notorious Oklahoma Reps. Silly Sally Kern and Wacky Wesselhoft, as you unknowingly did at Meyer’s lecture at OU! At east have another Dembski type knockdown ready, but be prepared for some nasty looks (or more). More George opponents would also help counter this nonsense.

    They got xian medics and xian pharmacists but the dentists?… Maybe that’s because they look at wisdom teeth and laugh at notions of intelligent design.

    Also, Jonny Vector @7: It’s peDANtry, not PEDantry.

    Robby George is definitely a world class slimeball. Check out this article about him in the Nation a couple years ago:

    If the voting is still open; I say pass. You’ve already provided an excellent summary of this guy’s, and every other religious asshat’s, argument. If you’re going to dedicate a few hours to the blog I would much rather get an extra post on viruses, or Biology, or Arnie. I doubt I will learn anything new from a post about this guy’s lecture. I know I will learn something new from a science post.

    Don’t bother.

    He is going to blather about god writing the constitution on the inside of Jefferson’s eyelids or something. Natural law guys are just pitiful. They are so stupid themselves that they can’t imagine how a wretched hoomun bean could just think up a legal system.

    Its just not possible! All those ideas in one head! Next thing you’re going to tell me is that people can talk more than one language!

    Must be Jebus. Cause he is big head smaaaart.

    Catholics climbing into bed with Baptists and Mormons is way weirder than my friends, Kevin and Roger, registering at Macy’s.

    “Science, Philosophy, and Religion in the Embryo Debate.” = “I Have a Fetus Fetish”

    Please we’re all dying to know what crucial insight you have regarding natural law; but you’re so vague! I’m sure that it’s really insightful, whatever it is. Really. Insightful.

    I, for one, would like to thank Limp Willy for pointing out that opponents of gay marriage are continuing to lie about proponents of gay marriage. In the example he gave, a book for which Jennings wrote the forward is falsely claimed to promote adult-child sex. It’s actually about making schools safer for gay children.

    Next time, you might want to point out that the claim you’re linking to is false, Billy boy. You don’t want someone to get the mistaken impression that you actually believed that to be true, do you?

    The book is entitled The Queering of Elementary Education, had its forward written by President Obama’s “safe school czar” Kevin Jennings, and is also endorsed by a friend of President Obama, William Ayres, an American elementary education theorist and former leader of a terrorist organization, the Weatherman underground.

    But other than that, nothing to see folks…

    But other than that, nothing to see folks…

    Indeed; for example, I see nothing resembling any attempt to demonstrate that the book promoted adult/child sex, which was the smear you were attempting to make.

    Did you really think you’d managed to dodge the point? Hasn’t bitter experience taught you by now that you’re too dumb to be properly weaselly, Wally?

    (Never mind; in the question lies the answer…)

  30. #32 William Wallace

    The Queering of Elementary Education, GLISTeN. Dude’s a flamer. It makes as much sense to put him in charge of safe schools initiatives as it does to put a victim who was bullied for drug addiction in charge of the DEA.

    “…and is also endorsed by a friend of President Obama, William Ayres, an American elementary education theorist and former leader of a terrorist organization, the Weatherman underground.”

    And president Obama is now the leader or a terrorist organization called the United States government.

    It makes as much sense to put him in charge of safe schools initiatives as it does to put a victim who was bullied for drug addiction in charge of the DEA.

    Um, the DEA’s official mission is to fight the smuggling and use of illicit drugs. By contrast, the mission of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools is not to fight homosexuality.

    You may be confusing the US government with the Iranian government again.
