The Greensboro Guardian Blog
The Greensboro Guardian has a new WordPress blog. This is pretty hilarious because nothing stopped them from naming it The Guilford Guardian, as originally intended, but I guess they forgot about that.
As a bonus, they have a new article by Tim Dunkin. As usual, he starts off with an obscure assault case by a Muslim on an atheist publicly mocking his religion. The judge defends the Muslim and Dunkin contends atheists have the right to mock Muslims without fear of assault. Whatever. We know where Dunkin is headed:
The attack on the fundamentals of American and Western civilization, while having taken place for several decades, seems to be reaching a fever pitch within just the last few years. Suddenly, things which just a few short years ago were inconceivable to the rational mind – such as legalizing gay “marriage,” married teachers leaving their wives and running off to live with their 18 year old students, amassing more debt than we have economy – have become commonplace, and are in many cases being forced off onto unwilling sectors of the population.
Of course, Dunkins goes on to use the logical fallacy of false equivalence to blow an obscure court case into a governmental assault on our freedoms. And in order to make the case that he is brighter than his readers, he points to an Italian communist. He pulls in the canard of “moral truth” to argue against moral relativism. Worse, Dunkin supposes that the left uses Muslim sharia law to forward this dastardly moral relativism. Typically, he winds up by urging the fundies to circle the wagons in defense of the nuclear family to win the culture war.
