The Other Side Speaks!? Freepers (Try) to Defend the ICR
In the interest of full disclosure, defenders of the ICR are out — if in somewhat less than full force — at FreeRepublic. You can see the comment thread humming along nicely, brimming with “how-dare-those-atheists-make-fun-of-our-font-size”… until a freeper who also happens to be a lawyer shows up. Oops! 🙂
I don’t care how much you hate atheists — and for these guys, it’s a lot — there simply aren’t glasses rose-colored enough to make someone believe that the ICR is going to come out on top of this dispute.
My favorite bit:
Wow, I just read though the article. For ranting and raving it wins a gold medal. For actually providing a discernable argument it fails utterly. ICR won in Federal court when California tried to do the same thing some years back, so one would expect they know exactly what to do to win again. This critic is going to look very foolish, I expect.
Since the ICR settled out of court in California in exchange for a religious exemption from the law, this is actually a pretty strong point… for the atheist. Of course, you wouldn’t know this if you only read ICR’s own ridiculous account of the lawsuit.
