    Oh those anthropologists, they’re just part of the gay agenda, just like the rest of the scientifical community.

    Now where’s my abacus? I need it to calculate the movement of the sun around the earth.

    Glenn Stanton should be fired.

    I wish there was a way to hold accountable Stanton, Dobson and others who so grossly misinform the public. They should strip them of their academic credentials.

    christine,
    I agree, it would be awesome if gays could make a class action lawsuit against dobson , stanton, et al because really, what they are doing is both libel and slander.

    I disagree with the suggestion that Stanton should be fired. Stanton’s doing his job, and I’d say he’s doing his job well (or at least as well as he can do it, given what his job is).

    Stanton’s job isn’t to accurately portray anthropologists’ opinions and professional understandings (singularly or as a whole) to the public. His job is to spin (or even misrepresent entirely, if necessary) those opinions in order to make it appear that they support the socio-political worldview of his employer. And that’s exactly what he tried to do. He just failed in the process. (I suppose Dobson could reasonably fire Stanton for doing his job ineffectively, but hey.)

    Yeah, he lied. We’re upset, and rightfully so. But hey, in this case, it was his job to lie.

    Instead of being fired, Stanton, along with Dobson and everyone else who works for or is affiliated with FOF, should be blacklisted by every professional organization who cares about integrity in the remotest. And those professional associations should make very public announcements about the fact that they’re blacklisted and the reasons for it.

    I think Jarred is quite correct that Stanton was just doing his job. In fact, he was following in the footsteps of James Dobson himself:

    “Now where’s my abacus? I need it to calculate the movement of the sun around the earth.”

    Your abacus, Jason? That won’t be enough; surely you’ll need your astrolabe as well.

    Jim:

    Is it my imagination or has the CitizenLink article been completely re-written since you first began posting on this article?

    I myself had sent an e-mail to Mr. Dozier on the 8th of March, and I’d swear that the above linked article reads differently now.

    PS In the original article there was also no link to the report that is included in the revised article.
