The Ultimate Danger of Witch Hunts

If you need a good example of why religious wingnuts running around with torches screaming "Pro-homosexual! Pro-homosexual!" is immoral, unjustified, stupid, and just plain wrong.... here you go.

In a nutshell, let me sum it up for you.

-- Inspirational seminar to help women of faith manage their finances includes Sister Sledge, the musical group who recorded the hit, "We Are Family".

-- Dr. James Dobson circulates and posts to Web newsletter opposing the We Are Family Foundation -- not affiliated with Sister Sledge, as even one of Dobson's assistants admits.

-- Ticket sales to seminar plummet; organizer, who started this initiative based on her mother's struggles financially after her father's premature death, is forced to cancel event.

-- Dobson's assistant, Paul Batura, reportedly says, "Oh, that's a shame. It sounds like a big misunderstanding."

Oh, Mr. Batura, this is a bit more than a "misunderstanding". Try "a natural outgrowth of witch hunts", namely that a lot of innocent people get hurt in the process.
