Dr. Groothuis, PhD, of The Constructive Curmudgeon and Denver Seminary, is a frequent guest of the Gino Geraci radio show, a Christocratic pulpit. Dr. Groothuis gleefully makes the most of all his appearances to attack liberal politics and politicians, and to peddle misinformation.
During his latest appearance, on Friday afternoon, he perpetuated a falsehood that I had already called him upon to correct on his blog. He again stated, incorrectly and with no regard for the truth or facts, that the last time he checked U.S. abortion laws were the most liberal on the planet (notice his leading use of the adjective liberal).
Perhaps Dr. Groothuis missed my correction of his March 08 post, which I also reprinted on my blog, in which case I hope that this post will serve as another reminder that he needs to update his knowledge. Or perhaps he is aware of my correction and has chosen to disregard it, in which case I guess he must think that god would endorse the protracted misinformation of one's readers and listeners (misinformation at best, wilful deceit at worst) if it is carried out in the service of the almighty, particularly when it may help to excite mindless Christians against a Democrat in an election. Call it a Hail Mary, if you like (or a Heil Cheney, if my suspicions on the professor are correct).
Dr. Groothuis: Doctor of Philosophy, Master of Deception.
