Dembski, Coulter, ID Hookup

William Dembski writes that he can't help but feel Ann Coulter's new diatribe, Godless, which includes a couple of chapters promoting intelligent design "will propel our issues in the public consciousness like nothing to date."

RSR can't help but believe that Coulter's book will bring home to the public just what intelligent design really is -- a right-wing fantasy. It makes mainstream Christians, Jews, and Muslims, among others, into atheists. It denigrates the faith moderate Republicans and Democrats. It declares that free thinkers, skeptics, agnostics, and atheists aren't really citizens.

Coulter's book has infuriated large sections of the public by saying of widows of 9/11 victims: “I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much.”

Their crime in Coulter's eyes? These women demanded accountability from the Bush Administration for its actions -- and inaction -- after their husbands died in the World Trade Center.

Will the people of the Gulf Coast who lost their homes and lives in Katrina because of the failures of Bush and Michael "Good Job Brownie" Brown be Coulter's next victims?

Godless makes explicit the fact that intelligent design is, at base, nothing more than a right-wing political movement that has nothing at all to do with science, and everything to do with hatred and intolerance.

Having a modern day Eva Braun on your side can't be good news.
