Dishonest Questioning

Kellym78 has a well written criticism of those who sought to portray planned parenthood as a racist organization in, Abortion is a Racist, Genocidal Act.

She demonstrates that the people who participated in this campaign are liars who concocted a process whereby they can 'bear false witness' against others, collecting evidence that can be easily distorted into providing support for their desired conclusion.

One of the things that I am noting more and more is how the culture of the religious right is a culture of lies and deception. Its members apparently have no love of truth. The are people who have decided where they want to go, and are willing to use any and every dishonest trick in the book to get there.

Please note, in saying this I am not condemning all members of the religious right. I only note, once again, that where intellectually honest members may exist, they are far too few and far too weak to have any effect when we look at the whole of the culture, where lies and other forms of deception are the order of the day.
