This is almost too funny to be true. From the mind of Michael Westfall:
Today the use of personal computers is one of the fastest growing areas of mass communication. This technology can be used for the good of humanity or in some cases small-minded warped individuals endeavor to use it to debase and alter Judeo-Christian values. There are now multiple radical “Left Be-Hinder” web sites that make a sport of attacking those who take a stand for decency. These sites question traditional Bible based morality as they labor to twist our society towards their own confused
values. They use their web sites as attack dogs that they aim at the people whom they personally identify as the “Right Wing-Nuts.” These web sites are growing in number, their influence is increasing and they are a part of a bigger process that is working to morally collapse our culture…
Those people who choose to run these sites are convoluted flamethrowers who puke out their bankrupt values to their like-minded peanut gallery of predictable fellow puppet bloggers who in turn blindly chime in with their agreement, support and mockery of Christian principles. Those people in their peanut galleries, who lack faith, don’t know what to believe. They are led around by their noses and comply because they are lost sheep. Those leading these sites ask leading initial questions designed to encourage
these bumpkin bloggers to slander, take out of context, ridicule, call names and verbally abuse God’s people, church leaders and those who are fighting to preserve America’s traditional God based family values.
Wow. And can I say “wow” again? Wow.
And which site is the exemplar for this corruption? Pharyngula? No. Why, it’s Ed Brayton’s Dispatches, which is run “from the dark edges of the Internet. In the pool of importance Brayton’s tiny little site is but the smallest of minnows.”
Now, I’m going out on a limb here, but I’m guessing that as part of the “dark edges of the Internet,” Scienceblogs.com and Ed get more hits than Westfall’s little enclave of lunacy. As does The Panda’s Thumb, which Westfall describes as “another pitiful little site also dedicated in large part to evolution.”
Clearly, Seed Magazine’s strategy of collecting blogs together is also part of this evil, evil plot to corrupt the believers:
To distance God from our children, they clump themselves together and fight to replace the teaching of intelligent design or God’s creation in schools with the teaching of evolution.
Hang on a minute! Fight to replace ID with evolution? That assumes ID is being taught in schools.
And I though the plan was to distance the children from God. not vice versa. I need to consult with my fellow cabalists.
