Andrew Sullivan Not Coming Clean on Christianists and Porn
Previously, I complained about how Andrew Sullivan had uncritically cited a New Scientist report that had misrepresented a study on religion and porn. Now, he has a new post on a blogger who attacks the New Scientist article from a different angle. Oddly, Sullivan claims that “Henry Farrell [, the blogger in question,] fisks that religion and porn study.” No, he doesn’t. He “fisks” the New Scientist piece and by implication its uncritical acceptance by Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan isn’t dumb enough to make such a mistake, is he?
