Homophobia in the Name of God

Homo­pho­bia in the Name of God is an art­icle, notion­ally about same-sex mar­riage in Canada, but which con­tains some inter­est­ing cri­ti­cism of the stance of con­ser­vat­ive reli­gious groups. The author, George Dvor­sky of Toronto, sug­gests that the cri­ti­cisms made by such groups are in fact counter-pro­duct­ive to their own cause, a view that I am inclined to agree with.

    Dear Simon,

    When you cite approv­ingly the work of the pres­id­ent of the “Toronto Transhuman­ist Asso­ci­ation, a non­profit organ­iz­a­tion devoted to encour­aging the use of tech­no­logy to tran­scend lim­it­a­tions of the human body”, do you think you might be fol­low­ing Churchhill’s dictum about Hitler and the Dev­il (“If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favour­able ref­er­ence to
    the dev­il in the House of Commons”)?

    Justin
