Document them? OK.

thepolitic.com is quickly becoming my fav destination for evangelical wingnut half-baked goods.

Like I said in the comments there recently, you have to stop and remember that you're not reading the onion... that these guys are serious.

Here's two goodies...

Aaron cites science that shows homosexual parenting is damaging. His post, and his credibility, get blown sky-high in the first two posts by people who simply bother to fact check. He prompting shuts comments off on the post.

Then there's their take on the indian/tim horton's joke.

Maybe I should scroll down to see if you've pulled them apart on this already...

I had to check out that post of Aaron's (major closet-case) on gay parenting. God, was that ever special. He presents no science, exhorts everyone to argue the science and not the bullshit organisation calling itself "The American College of Pediatricians," and then shuts down the comments.

I'm constantly baffled by the fact that such people not only exist, but take themselves seriously.
