Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation is no stranger to bad arguments. This is a guy who says that if we believe in the reality of global warming or want to use less fossil fuels, we’re “insulting” God. Now he’s imagining hypocrisy in his opponents while ignoring his own:
Meanwhile, OpenSecrets.org, the website for the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, says the Sierra Club “generally raises money in support of Democrats.” One part of that party’s platform includes abortion, which is life-threatening not only to the unborn child but also to women who get abortions.
Cal Beisner, founder and national spokesman of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, says, “The hypocrisy of those who supported the EPA’s efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants in the name of children’s health while supporting members of Congress who support abortion on demand is palpable and disgusting.”
So let me see if I get this straight. If you think women have reproductive rights but also think we should take steps to avoid harming and potentially killing people who are actually alive with pollution, you’re a hypocrite. If you oppose reproductive rights and want to force women to give birth but then promote more pollution to harm those who are actually alive, that’s totally not hypocritical. Sounds legit.
