Holy Tinfoil Hat, Batman!

Every week or so, I visit www.Rightwingwatch.org. Bless those people for sending correspondents all the way to Wingnutistan!

They first published this quote from well-known aerosol huffer conservative radio host Kevin Swanson.
I’m beginning to get some evidence from certain doctors and certain scientists that have done research on women’s wombs after they’ve gone through the surgery [hysterectomy?], and they’ve compared the wombs of women who were on the birth control pill to those who were not on the birth control pill. And they have found that with women who are on the birth control pill, there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb. They’re just like dead babies. They’re on the inside of the womb. And these wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies.
Okay, then! I listened to ten minutes of the January 31 program where Swanson interviewed Kevin Peeples, the filmmaker behind the "documentary" Birth Control: How Did We Get Here? Spoiler alert: God loves babies!

Strangely, I found the tiny corpses of basic grammar and punctuation embedded in both Swanson's and Peeples' websites. Click on through to Wednesday's show, A Vision for the Family Economy, Leaving an Inheritance For Your Children.
98.4% of parents in America won’t be a good man leaving an inheritance for his children. What is happening to the family and just how bad is the economy? Kevin interviews Guy Burgo about Christian wills and trusts.
Or buy Peeples' DVD for only $14.99.
The Definitive Films on the Subject of Birth Control and It's Impact on the Church, Marriage and Family" [sic, even the quotation mark] ...
In order to effectively communicate this truth we have to ask 2 questions; how did we get here, and is it up to us?
Would it be shooting fish in a barrel to point out that Swanson is a big proponent of homeschooling?

The point is not that these people are totally nuts. Rather, that many opponents of birth control are wilfully ignorant of human biology. This week the Obama administration made another concession to religious groups opposed to mandatory insurance coverage of contraception. If we are to respect their "religious liberty," they must respect our "scientific facts." So, today's $5 is for the National Association of Biology Teachers. Because you can't just make shit up!
