DaveScot = Blithering Idiot
I am somewhat reticent to give this guy even one hit of extra traffic to his blog but, I can't help it. He is such a blithering idiot that I just have to comment about him just this one time. His blog is Uncommon Decent, a blog owned by William Demski, one of the leading ding-dongs of the Intelligent Design movement. He often makes absurd and utterly false claims and arguments to attempt to bolster his argument for ID making himself look like a fool in the process. He often spews out intolerance and ignorance in the process.
Well, today, he got zinged real good by falling for a years old Web hoax in the form of a chain letter that claims that the ACLU is suing the US Marines to prevent marines from being allowed to pray. The idiot bought it hook line and sinker with total and complete credulity. Then, when he was shown that it was a hoax, he made a rather clumsy, Buster Keatonish attempt to talk his way around it by stating:
To everyone who’s pointed out that the ACLU story is a fabrication according to snopes.com - that’s hardly the point. The pictures of Marines praying are real. The fighting and dying to protect the interests of the United States is real. The request to pray for them is real. So I removed the fake names, noted the ACLU statement is rumor, and quoted a very real former Marine Sergeant’s sentiments instead. If anyone has a problem with that they can KMA. Google that.
HOO RAH! Semper Fi!
He then backpedals even further (while removing two of the critical comments) by stating:
The ACLU has certainly stood against prayer in public school even if led by students in extra-curricular settings like graduation ceremonies and football games. There is not one iota of doubt in my mind that the ACLU would love to do the same thing to prayer in the military. Prayers led by commissioned and non-commissioned officers in the Corps are common. The military builds and maintains chapels on military bases. They employ religious clerics whose job is spiritual counseling and leading worship services. Anyone that thinks the ACLU wouldn’t stand against that if they could get away with it needs their head examined. They simply know the American public wouldn’t tolerate it and the ACLU would be so harmed they might never recover as an organization. So they bite their anti-religious tongues in the interest of self-preservation.This is but one example of just how much of an utter idiot this guy is. This is probably the last time I will ever mention this idiot again simply because I really do hate giving this guy any more attention than he deserves which is to say, none at all but, I had to just get my own opinion of the guy on the record.
DaveScot, you are a complete, utter idiot and fool. You make me laugh.
