The distortions perpetuated by leading conservative media personalities are dangerous and serve only to distract from the facts of the situation
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 2, 2009
The President of Interweave of South Jersey issues a bold challenge today to key conservative media personalities. David Shaman unapologetically asserts that there exists no legitimate argument against gay marriage in the United States based on logic or reason.
“I scrutinize the arguments of leading conservative talk show hosts” writes Shaman, “… and I can’t believe that they are not being more decisively discredited regarding their positions on gay rights and gay marriage in particular”.
“Plenty of articulate people advocated for slavery and segregation until they were finally proven wrong under the bright light of reason. The fear-tactic arguments- especially the favorite ‘slippery-slope’- simply hold no water,” adds Shaman “I think the American public agrees with me, even though many are intimidated to speak out.
Specifically mentioning Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage, David Shaman openly challenges any of these “authorities” to meet him in the public arena to stand the test of true intellectual honesty.
Shaman quotes Abraham Lincoln:
“Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment nothing can fail; without it nothing can succeed.” Shaman further declares that the spurious arguments wielded by many pundits are just “smoke and mirrors” which are easily dispelled under honest analysis. “We must educate the public in order to put this bigotry behind us...” declares Shaman, “The distortions perpetuated by leading conservative media personalities are dangerous and serve only to distract from the facts of the situation”.
David Shaman and Interweave of South Jersey are currently sponsored by a special holiday season website. Holiday shopping on this site directly supports this work.
