WorldNetDaily tried to make an enticing plug for a lecture in a Sept. 12 article:
Where to start on the subject of sex and politics?
“Monkey Business” and former Colorado Sen. Gary Hart?
The blue dress and Bill Clinton?
Weiner, Spitzer or Filner?
So many cases, but they mostly were men misbehaving.
On Friday, Patrick Henry College’s annual Faith and Reason Lecture will feature Stephen Baskerville, professor of government at PHC, who will talk about the sexual revolution’s impact on modern politics.
Further down in the article, though, one got the idea where Baskerville's lecture would really go, which seemed to stray far afield from the stated topic:
He noted one issue in which “draconian punishments” have been handed out – “the system of unilateral and involuntary divorce, government’s purpose-built mechanism for dismembering families, seizing control over the private lives of innocent people and their children, summarily confiscating property,and criminalizing the embodiments of the hated ‘patriarchy’: fathers.”
“Parents sucked into the divorce machinery against their will and through literally ‘no-fault’ of their own, constitute the canary in the mineshaft,” he said.
“Their criminalization by the sexual militants who run the divorce industry is the model for what will be inflicted on the rest of us when the sexual militants achieve their control over other bureaucratic gendarmeries. For the divorce machinery is the model for a whole series of new ‘gender’ crimes – many of which no one has ever heard of before and no one really understands,” he said.
And that, in fact, is pretty much where Baskerville's lecture went. Right Wing Watch listened to it so we don't have to:
A mandatory lecture given to the students of the Christian conservative Patrick Henry College on Friday offered apologies for rape, domestic violence and child abuse, and blamed American mass incarceration on feminists’ insistance on prosecuting sexual violence.
Patrick Henry professor Stephen Baskerville, a so-called “men’s rights” advocate, delivered the college’s annual “Faith and Reason” lecture, Libby Anne reported at Patheos. Baskerville started off with his thesis that feminists and Islamists are working together to push Christians out of public life, sort of like the alliance between Hitler and Stalin:
Elsewhere in the lecture, Baskerville rails against gay rights and no-fault divorce, concluding that marriage equality “can end nowhere but in prison and in death.”
Remember, Patrick Henry College is a school catering to homeschooled evangelicals, and WND editor Joseph Farah has sent at least one child there. This is the sort of thing Farah permits his children to "learn," which may explain why WND is the way it is.
