The next time one of ’em wants to whine and moan to you about all those awful right-wingers out there and their literal belief in Genesis, look ’em in the eye and say “Young-Earth Creationism doesn’t kill kids*.”
Doctor Andrew Wakefield – anti-vaccination nut – killed kids. And elements of the progressive and radical Left ate that stuff up with a spoon. Which they will now pretend to have never done. So I don’t think that I’m particularly obliged to listen to the smug sneers of anybody who doesn’t want to face that particular unfortunate truth…
*At some point during this post I’m expected to issue a pro forma disavowing of Genesis literalism, thus showing that I’m hip to the culture or something. You know something? Forget that: Young-Earth Creationists don’t put my kids at risk. I’ll worry about their religious beliefs when they start impacting on my actual daily life, thanks.
