They Think We're Really, Really Stupid [Serge]

A letter to the Edward's campaign.

Of all the well documented statements that your new blogger has made, I believe this one is the most offensive:

My intention is never to offend anyone for his or her personal beliefs, and I am sorry if anyone was personally offended by writings meant only as criticisms of public politics. Freedom of religion and freedom of expression are central rights, and the sum of my personal writings is a testament to this fact.
Now I'll be honest here. I realize that in the political world there will be times that a candidate's campaign will stretch the truth. That actually doesn't bother me. What does bother me is when someone hands me a lie that is so badly derived that it insults my intelligence. In other words - if you are going to lie, at least do it in a way which is not so transparently obvious. We are really not that stupid. Really.

By the way, if the worst occurs and you are elected president, you will be in charge of appointing a Supreme Court Justice. What does the fact that your campaign did not read Marcotte's blog before hiring her say about your decision making capacities?

By the way, nice house.



  1. Serge,
    Awesome! I'm still laughing hysterically over that last line about the house!

  2. Scott, Serge, and Jay,

    One of the leading Catholic apologists (Dave Armstrong) has a permanent link to your organization the link is listed under the abortion information part. Armstrong has a permanent link to the Making Abortion Unthinkable Video Series too. He likes what you are doing and a few weeks ago he even did a blog post about LTI, etc. Among other things, Armstrong wrote, “Scott Klusendorf of the Life Training Institute: an excellent pro-life group (thank God for it, and may it grow)” I think it is great that Catholics and Protestants are working together against elective abortion. Regarding your article “Co-Belligerents or Good Samaritans?” Dave Armstrong writes, “I agree 100% with what he says in that paper. He’s obviously an evangelical in the Colson/Schaeffer mold.” BTW, I like your new LTI information page.
