Nathaniel commented on the blog post No surprise: NC anti-gay Pastor Patrick Wooden pimps his ‘life-earned,’ non-academic doctorate
I am always iffy about honorary degrees, but I have seen some deserving people be awarded such. However, this is a little more heinous. It is almost like purchasing an honorary degree, but with no way to determine how ‘honorary’ it actually is.
Also, I don’t get the “gay sex is gross” argument. I know of lots of sex straight people engage in that is gross (at least to me), but I don’t hear Mr. Wooden preaching against them. (Perhaps he would if the world were rid of icky gay people.) It is also so narrow, focussed on particular acts engaged in by a sub-group of the people he is trying to vilify. Of course, he has to pile lies on top of that, but even the starting premise is ridiculous. Perhaps, if he talks enough, people will wise up to how stupid his statements are and he will do his own cause more harm than good.
