DefCon? Your Intolerance Is Showing!

I just knew it wouldn't take long before a rabid, liberal left group attempted to launch a disparaging campaign against the soon-to-open Creation Museum.

It's kinda funny though. Sometimes the titles that these groups give themselves are (inadvertently, on their part) abbreviations that can be transformed into words describing their reprehensible character!

"DefCon" is the name of the group. Oh boy...can we have fun with that title! I'll start:

"Defensive Connivers"
"Definitive Con-artists"
"Defeatist Contrarians"
"Deflating Contortionists"
"Defeatist Conceitedness"

Ahh! I'm having too much fun!

Actually, I'm sure that Mark and Doug could come up with some beauts! Where are you guys when I need you!

Back to the post.

I became aware of this loonie group over at Citizenlink. Author Wendy Cloyd alerts us with her article entitled Liberal Group Assails New Creation Museum. Excerpt:

DefCon is telling people the project would "undermine" science and "confuse" children. On its Web site, DefCon is described as "an online grassroots movement combating the growing power of the religious right" and fighting for "the separation of church and state … while respecting people of faith and their right to express their beliefs."

According to Ken Ham, president and co-founder of Answers in Genesis (AiG), DefCon is demanding tolerance of all beliefs, but will not tolerate anyone who believes the Bible.

"What is incredible about all this is that this group called DefCon is supposed to be defending the Constitution," he told CitizenLink. "They say that you can have freedom of speech, freedom of religion – but you're not allowed to say that science supports the Bible."

Yep...a tolerant group displays it's intolerance...once again!

Yep...the usual mantra is on display...the museum isn't even open yet and DefCon claims that it has no basis in science!

Ham said it's preposterous to claim the museum has no basis in science.

"We are opening up a major facility to tell the world that the Bible is true and we use good research in biology, geology, astronomy, anthropology and so on – to help people understand you can trust God's word. And they don't like it," he said.

The group is forming a petition against the museum. So much for free speech! So much for freedom of religion! So much for freedom of association! DefCon thinks it deserves all of those things...but not Creation Museum proponents!

So much for tolerance!

DefCon claims this "institutionalizes a lie."

Ham had a great comeback:

"What's our lie?" Ham asked. "We're saying the Bible's true."
