Why Little Green Footballs is a hate site and why anyone that believes in G-d should take it off your blog roll UPDATED

Posted by avideditor on June 19, 2008

Updated: as you can see by my last comment in the thread. I think the support to these claims are build upon not enough evidence for such drastic conclusions. I think some of the work Charles does at LGF is essential and it is good work. When I first wrote this I was presented with evidence that Charles has an agenda to attack believers. I don’t know how good the evidence is now. I hope that is not Charles attempt. I don’t want to discount the great things Charles has done. So read on with caution.

Exposing Islamo-Fascism and the fifth column that supports and defends the jihadis is important. But attacking people that believe in G-d is just down low. There is a difference between a Jihadi and a person of faith. It looks like Charles has lost line. He is running a hate sight against anyone that believe G-d is behind the creation of the world. A good friend of mine was just banned from LGF he started a new blog. Check it out.  

IT IS TIME FOR PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE IN G-D TO STAND UP AND STOP ALLOWING CHARLES TO PREACH HIS HATE. I was with him when he rallied against the jihadis. I was with him when he rallied against the neo-nazis. BUT I WILL NOT BE WITH HIM WHEN HE RALLIED AGAIST BELIEVING IN G-D.  

Here is an interesting post. 

 

What good is LGF

I dont know what LGF is trying to accomplish. Most Conservatives I know are people of deep faith and love for this country. By attacking and belittling those people of faith LGF is cutting its nose off despite its face. What Conservatives need is a real blog to discuss the issues, not this psuedo-science mixed with vitrolic hatred of anyone who is different.

On the one hand Charles loves to belittle the Global Warming theory which apparently a good number of scientists are supporting. Charles is so good at science that he can disregard the rantings of a majority of scientists. He is against GW theory only because it is a talking point of the left. Because of his blinding hatred of the left he comes out against GW theory, which is just as ’scientific’ as the evolution theory. But Charles will put down and denigrate anyone who has faith in the Master of the Universe. His hatred is blinding him, and it will be his downfall.

    Hi Avid,

    Thanks for the link. It is so sad that people who have power often let it go to their heads. I just hope that others reading his site are not persuaded that life is random and without purpose. Charles would surely be guilty of leading others astray, one of the biggest sins which cannot be repaired.

    It is a miraculous world out there. I witness it every day and count my blessings. Every day I praise him and try to learn from life the lessons he is trying to teach. When Hashem is with you, there is nothing to fear.

  2. Satah said

    Yeah, I stopped going to LGF, as Charles’ long-time members continue to spew out anti-Christian/Jew garbage. I think a lot of people woke up and left – or got banned in the ongoing purge over there. The site is sort of pathetic now, it used to be pretty good. If you post anything that his cronies disagree with or if you give anti-Christian/Jewish links a thumbs down rating – his cronies will stalk you and collect how you vote and publish it to try to intimidate and run you off. LGF is more or less just an islamic apologist site now anyway. The site self-destructed. Pretty sad, as I liked it at one time.

    I am a believer in HaShem, to the point where I am raising my children in the Shomron (aka Samaria, aka Wild West Bank). But I am not offended by the freewheeling discussion on evolution at LittleGreenFootballs. I’ve been reading over there for a long time and usually people get banned only if they attack people (not the ideas, the people).

    Please rethink the anti-LGF stance. I get a lot of strength from the masses at LGF who support Israel and hate anti-Semitism. Especially when LGF’s views Israel’s enemies are so much more realistic than my own government’s (sad to say).

  4. avideditor said

    Esther I agree with you that LGF has some amazing redeeming qualities such as supporting Israel and fighting Jihad. I think evolution can work with the Torah and it is Hashem’s plan. But I think the tone of LGF and what I saw in some comment sections has stated to attack the belief in Hashem and the jewish soul. I don’t read LGF that much anymore to be an expert on it. But lets just say I am a sad former lizard that is upset about the way LGF is going. I hope I am wrong. I think it is great you are living in Samaria. I pray the misguided ways of the Israeli government change soon. I am personally surprised Charles posted a link to this site.

  5. Kenneth said

    Nobody at LGF, least of all Charles, has attacked or belittled religious Jews or Christians of faith. Charles has criticised the Intelligent Design ideology. ID is not equivalent to faith. If somebody wants to believe ID as an article of faith, go ahead. But don’t pretend it is a scientific theory. Because ID isn’t science.

  6. avideditor said

    I am no ID expert. But isn’t it basically saying that G-d is behind Evolution?

  7. Esther said

    Kol haKavod, avideitor, it takes a big person to reevaluate thinking on an emotional subject like this. Well done!

    @Avideditor:

    It’s a pity you don’t read LGF more regularly: if you did, I rather doubt you would have given much credence to people who either lack basic reading comprehension skills or the intelligence to understand that “…Charles has an agenda to attack believers.”

    That’s the sort of dumbed-down but dangerous simplification that I would expect from members of the brain-challenged Left.

    @Satah: “LGF is more or less just an islamic apologist site now anyway..Charles’ long-time members continue to spew out anti-Christian/Jew garbage.”

    Can you link to any examples of either or both statements? It’s going to be difficult, because Charles systematically bans anyone posting crap like that.

    Yikes man, get a grip.

    But yes, I do see why you might not feel comfortable on LGF…

  9. ryannon said

    edit:

    …people who either lack basic reading comprehension skills or the intelligence to believe that “…Charles has an agenda to attack believers.”

  10. ReineDeTout said

    AvidEditor – in no. 6 you indicated: Isn’t ID basically saying that God is behind Evolution?

    The answer is yes and no. The ID/Creationist “movement” is an attempt to insert fundamentalist Christian belief into public schools, specifically science classes, by means of an argument that ID is “science”.

    There are many at LGF, myself included, who believe that God created all. But that belief is a religious and faith-based belief, not a scientific belief.

    Since I am a Catholic, I do not want my daughter indoctrinated with protestant fundamentalist Christian belief. In my home, and at my church, and through religion classes, I will see to it that my child gets the religious instruction in our faith and frankly, it is my right to ensure that her religious instruction is in the faith of our choice. It is not the “right” of public schools to take that away from me by inserting protestant fundamentalist Christian belief into science classes.

    Charles has not been unsupportive of religious belief. He does not support the watering down of education for the purpose of religious indoctrination in public schools.

    And that is much of what the argument is about.

    If you don’t think so, then see this posted by ID proponent unixrab a few days ago:

    unixrab 7/09/08 9:19:09 pm reply quote -10

    regardless of the “characterization”….. I’ve been harping on the bias here and “propaganda” is a loaded word…definitely not an “unbiased” word.. plus: we creationists just want the best for all, even if you can’t (yet) get it

  11. Spytalk said

    Wow, thanks for the insight. I quit visiting or posting at LGF a few weeks ago. I posted a paragraph or two this evening about how carbon-dating is inaccurate and that really hit the fan along with my follow-up post of:

    “Until it became popular to be agnostic or atheist or liberal, most historical scientists were either Christian or people of Faith http://www.adherents.com/people/100_scientists.html they were not “Christian Scientists” they were scientists who were Christians who knew that something does not come out of nothing and that there is an inherent order, logic and design to all we can discover. Scientific terms are endless and to pick the bone over a scientific term when the guy is not claiming to be the top world scientist, but rather a proponent shows a pretty defensive/aggressive attitude. I’m not too interested in visiting lgf anymore as of a couple months ago. My posts are “complete crap” yet I hold a few science degrees here and there. Pretty aggressive people on this forum. If you want to be agnostic – good luck with that – I don’t remember bashing anyone on personal terms. And I do remember stating that ID should not represent any particular “religion.” I’ve been following LGF for more than five years. (# of posts 13 – hmm, shows that I prefer to read, study, and think rather than flame at other posters – I’m also very busy most of the time). For those of you that disagree with me, keep this in mind, I disagree with you, ok? And yes, I did take some time this evening to read all of the harsh disagreement.”

    Along w/ my final email to Charles:

    “Dear Charles, I have visited and respected lgf for a long, long, time. I have always tried to email or send something I thought would be helpful. I have always tried to be agreeable but to be called a ‘troll’ on this blog this evening is unacceptable – it’s not very friendly, and the posts are harsh – just not for me, I prefer respectful debate. And, by the way I am a fairly highly educated and experienced person, I do not have the time to write pages and pages of material to debate ID with all the details that people ‘think’ I’m omitting. Thanks for your work – most, but not all that I do agree with. ”

    Thanks for avideditor site.

  12. Spytalk said

    For the record, the guy that runs LGF publicly posted to everyone this evening how many comments I’ve ever made there (about 14) and who knows what else of my information (maybe it’s public anyway – don’t know) – I just don’t feel like visiting that site anymore. I read the site for many years. For a blog operator to do that out of a visitor wanting to just state or post that carbon dating is not accurate in a few paragraphs w/o pages and pages of ‘details’ that his cronies claim I’m omitting – the guy has to be an atheist at heart to react like that (among other attitudes he’s displayed on his own blog), he’s just been hiding it all this time. There are thousands of strongly anti-faith pro-evolution people on that site – who think that evolution is above debate or reproach – that in itself a very direct violation of scientific principle.

  13. avideditor said

    Charles discussion of evolution reminds me of Al Gore’s discussion of Global Warming. Smearing the other side and saying they are ignorant is not a way to win an argument.

    However, none of us are perfect and I think what he has done in the aspects of creating public awareness against jihadis is important. I just fear the direction he is going on his site. It seems to me he is trying to prevent open debate and treating people that believe in G-d like we are Jihadis.

    But ironically, the jihadis are just as opposed to the theory of evolution as creationists. So they have that in common.

    To be a supporter of that pseudo-conservative website for that many years only to be likened to jihadist, is too much!

    Its nothing more than a hate-bigot site, just read the comments from the lizard evolution brigade, they are always the same posters and Charles will troll around leaving comments calling those who support creation “the cut & paste creation crew”, or accuse them of posting stuff on a dead thread just to get the last word in, yet his brigade is nothing but cut & paste and wouldn’t know real science if it bit them on the rear-end.

    I realized real quick that Charles is not well-balanced and illiterate to boot!

  15. muman613 said

    I think Charles has gone over the line. I never ever said I supported teaching ID theory or anything like that. What I did say in almost every case is that the hand of Hashem was involved in all of creation. Because of this he made a character judgement on me and labeled me a ID supporter. As I said, this is not true. And most of the people who support his crusade will argue that this or that finding proves that there is no creator. I simply stood up for what I believe and I was judged harshly. Apparently this is a pattern.

    I wish him the best. I just dont read his site because I am not welcome. And I get my news from other sources.

    “Nobody at LGF, least of all Charles, has attacked or belittled religious Jews or Christians of faith. Charles has criticised the Intelligent Design ideology.”

    And in #8, by ryannon:

    It’s not so much one specific comment or another one can point to.

    It’s the overall attitude and tone. (Although you really should see post #14 on this page.)

    There is definitely an undercurrent of prejudice against Christians and other traditionalist believers at LGF, hiding under the guise of “Oh no, we’re just against Intelligent Design, not Christianity (or people of other faiths).”

    Charles’ bigotry against believers is more subtle.

    He’s not as obvious about it as are some of the trolls that have dropped in over the years. His is more of a smugness and arrogance against believers, rather than out-right hatred.

    Although judging from some of the posts I’ve seen above (such as #11 or #14 where it’s reported that Charles actually had the audacity to compare Christian creationists to Islamic jihadists!), his anti-faith bias is now pretty clear.

    I think this is why some just don’t see it, and they think everyone posting on this page is just a case of sour grapes over Charles’ rejection of ID (Intelligent Design).

    I really don’t care that Charles likes evolution and rejects ID.

    What irks me is the condescending and rude tone he takes against those who do not accept evolution.

    Telling me that you’re not against Christians or Jews but only against I.D. is a bit like people who say that they’re against “Zionism” but not against Jews.

    You know most of the time if someone says they’re “anti-Zionism” it’s nothing but code speak for hating Jewish folks.

    I was drawn to LGF for its coverage of fanatical Islam and its strong pro-Israel stance.

    I was willing to scroll past his incendiary pro-Evolution / anti-Intelligent Design rants, but after giving his blog a rest for a week or so and then returning (thinking maybe he had grown tired of that topic), I was dismayed when I checked in about two nights ago and found a new Darwin post.

    Then I logged in today thinking, ‘well, I’ll just ignore that last one’ – but lo and behold if there wasn’t another new Darwin post!

    Because he keeps posting about the subject, he is throwing it into our faces, and so I think he’s intentionally trying to offend and annoy people of faith.

    And why is this subject, which is so upsetting to some, allowed to be posted about until the cows come home, but the subject of abortion is forbidden there?

    And also for Kenneth:
    even Christians such as myself don’t necessarily want ID taught in schools. I don’t care either way if it is or is not.

    There is no secret agenda of Christians trying to sneak ID into schools, but so many pro-Darwinists behave like tin foil hat wearers, they behave as though there is one.

    And they sound no different to me than the fruit-cakes on the web who spout off different 9/11 conspiracy theories.

    (If there is a secret ID plot, the Christian Cabal didn’t invite me.)

    What is creepy, however, is that nobody is freely allowed to criticize evolution without repercussion in science journals, universities, and the like.

    Anyone who has tried to do so in universities gets fired, demoted, denied tenure; students get marked down on for disagreeing with it, people get black balled (get fired and can’t get work elsewhere).

    Secularists, agnostics, and atheists can teach evolution at American schools all they like, I don’t mind in the least.

    But people who do not believe in evolution have every right to teach against it, too, and should not have to face negative penalities.

    (And by “teaching against it,” no, I am not referring to presenting a case in favor of Intelligent Design.)

    ryannon Says:
    “if you did, I rather doubt you would have given much credence to people who either lack basic reading comprehension skills or the intelligence to understand that “…Charles has an agenda to attack believers.”

    -Er, because he does have one, and there’s nothing wrong with my “reading comprehension skills.” His prejudice has become pretty apparent lately.

    #10, ReineDeTout:
    So you’re shaking in your boots and afraid because someone may have you sit in an air conditioned classroom one day, while you’re sipping your Coca-Cola, and hear about irreducible complexity for an hour?

    That’s like the liberals equating a U.S. Marine putting a trash bag with air holes in it over the head of a Gitmo Muslim terrorist detainee with “torture.”

    No, torture is having holes drilled in your body with a power tool or having your head slowly sawed off with a dull blade, as the Islmaic terrorists have done to civilian / Jewish / Christian captives.

    I’m not in support of *or* against the teaching of ID in schools, but I don’t see what harm would come of it if it were allowed.

    People who are rabidly against the teaching of ID make it sound as though people wanting to teach some kids ID are really asking if they can expose the kids to Anthrax.

    #6 Avid Editior
    I am no ID expert. But isn’t it basically saying that G-d is behind Evolution?

    Some Christians believe that God used evolution in creation, but most who believe in Intelligent Design believe in a literal interpretation of the creation account in the book of Genesis, and that the days mentioned there-in are literal 24 hour period days.

    Christians who try to get evolution to fit with the Bible like to argue that the “days” mentioned in Genesis are really millions of years.

    #5, Kenneth wrote:
    If somebody wants to believe ID as an article of faith, go ahead. But don’t pretend it is a scientific theory. Because ID isn’t science.

    And neither is evolution. But anyway.

    It’s not that I as a Christian get upset if someone wants to disagree with ID.

    What is disturbing is the attitude held by Charles and some others at that blog that anyone who does believe in ID or who rejects evolution is an uneducated redneck.

    #12, Spytalk
    He did that to you? That is terrible.

    I’ve been largely ignoring the Darwin threads there – I don’t go into the comment sections.

    I doubt I’ll be going back to that site again.

    It’s so ironic, isn’t it?

    The people who are fanatical about supporting evolution and being against ID act as though they are the brainy and educated ones, but they’re so dogmatic and uninterested in hearing opposing views on the subject (or allowing those views to be taught), that they’re actually the ones who are narrow-minded and who are against learning. They also lean towards censorship.

    #14 Bar wrote,
    Charles will troll around leaving comments calling those who support creation “the cut & paste creation crew”,

    That’s funny, because one staunch Darwinist there, Killgore Trout, loves to copy and paste in (or link to) pro Darwin stuff quite a bit.

    What’s the problem – Charles is finding he can’t offer decent rebuttals to the pasted arguments?

    Well #10, ReineDeTout, one reason I’m turned off by LGF is that it is steeped quite a bit in Roman Catholicism.

    The Roman Catholic Church has introduced many false teachings because she insists on placing the Pope and Tradition on the level of the Bible, and, in reality, what happens is that the Pope and Church Tradition often trump -cancel out- God’s Written Word.

    What you are left with is an institution that preches a false Gospel; that in order to have any chance of salvation, the RC teaches, that one must be a member of a particular denomination (Roman Catholicism), one must partake of sacraments within that denomination, and one must be objectively good. It’s a works-based salvation format.

    The Bible knows nothing about having to “be good” to be saved, or having to belong to a certain denomination to be saved, etc.

    #14, Bar,
    or accuse them of posting stuff on a dead thread just to get the last word in

    I’ve posted last in LGF threads plenty of times, but not because I’ve wanted to. I always seem to come into them late, but it’s not intentional.

    Also, I don’t visit his blog often. So a topic that grabs my eye that I wish to post to may be farther down the page by the time I get there.

    #15 muman613 Says:
    And most of the people who support his crusade will argue that this or that finding proves that there is no creator.

    And that is the real reason they cling so tightly to the fable of evolution: it’s not that they believe in science or care about science, as they keep insisting.

    Darwinism is all about being against religion, against faith, against God.

    The real reason they adhere to evolution is they think it gives them a way out of believing in a God – one who will hold them accountable for how they lived their lives.

    Darwinism is their “blankie” (security blanket).

    It was good to find this web page. Now I know I’m not alone, and that other people were spotting the anti-faith undertones at LGF too.

    Charles will direct you to talkorigins.org, it’s the final word of the debate, but I suspect you are correct that he can not refute the arguments.

    What he and the evolution brigade don’t realize is their holey grail “talkorigins.org” is not peer reviewed, which is stated on the website.

    Neither he nor his evolution brigade are concerned about this, peer review only applies to anti-science ID and or creationist research.

    What is an “evolutionist?”
    Actually, it’s an idiotic smear term, invented by creationists to try to impute to scientists the same kind of blind unreasoning fanaticism that creationists possess. To those who know what you’re doing, it’s a classic case of projection.

    That is the most oxymoronic statement I have ever read.
    Evolution-ist, creastion-ist, who’s blind and who’s the illiterate idiot using the same suffix to describe others while claiming it’s a smear term invented by creationist!

    P.S. If you reject “Darwinism,” yes, you are anti-science. The theory of evolution is one of humanity’s greatest scientific achievements, and if you deny it, you are denying science.

    Now, if you simply choose to deny science, and don’t try to force your views on other people, that’s your own business. It’s sad, but we all have free will.

    The problem is that the groups I’ve been posting about are trying to FORCE their religious views on the rest of society, and they’re using dishonest tactics to do it.

    So you must put your faith in Darwinism or you are anti-science according to LGF, the peer reviewed scientific blog? Oh, did I say peer reviewed, that’s right their peers such as pandasthumb.org considers LGF a idiotic pseudo-science blog.

  18. argylesock said

    #17. I can’t bring myself to click on the links and see it firsthand, so I trust your copy and paste quotes.

    It’s stupid he should say that anyone who rejects Darwinism is “anti science,” since there are people who reject Darwinism who have science degrees, work as scientists, who teach the subject at universities.

    I believe that Darwinism is a religious belief, and I see it being forced on people.

    A question… if he rejects the terms “Darwinist” and “Evolutionist,” what label does he accept?

    I do not see how “Darwinist” and “Evolutionist” are bad terms, they are not derogatory, they are simply descriptive.

    Ironically, he gets it wrong, too – creationism is not the same thing as intelligent design, yet he seems to be calling ID supporters “creationists.”

    “blind unreasoning fanaticism”

    That describes Charles – he’s not even willing, it would appear, to listen to what people with a differing view have to say, nor does he think anyone should be allowed to criticize evolution.

    “Now for some quote mining”

    You have a far stronger stomach than I do. Not only have I stopped visiting the LGF homepage, but I won’t go into the Darwin threads.

    I tried going into some of those threads early on, when it first started, but the incredible arrogance, rudeness of the Darwinists was insufferable. They don’t realize what arrogant, smug little jerks they sound like, or maybe they just don’t care.

    “The theory of evolution is one of humanity’s greatest scientific achievements,”

    That is lame. Sounds like the boast of a 15 year old high school boy.

    He’s also not being very honest – ID supporters do not “deny” evolution. They agree with MICRO evolution, but they do dispute MACRO evolution.

    Charles lets Kilgore Trout rule his website. Charles is a very ignorant man and full of hate. He’s a loser and I hope he goes down!

  20. argylesock said

    #19. Trajan:
    Killgore Trout can be extremely rude. He and I got into an exchange over evolution and intelligent design where I was being very nice and polite to him the whole time, but his behavior got increasingly worse.

    It got so bad that he opened one post by referring to myself and others who reject evolution with a vulgar term (I think it was the “mother f*cker” term, or assh*oles, but it was something very obscene, and it was totally unjustified).

    I can’t imagine why he acted so irrationally about that topic – unless my hunch is correct and evolution is a dogma of atheist religion, so he felt his “religion” was being attacked.

    I’d like to correct something I said above, which was,
    “Some Christians believe that God used evolution in creation, but most who believe in Intelligent Design believe in a literal interpretation of the creation account in the book of Genesis, and that the days mentioned there-in are literal 24 hour period days.”

    I read up on it some more, and one site by Creationists characterized Intelligent Designers as not consisting of as many 6 day literalists / Young Earthers as was my initial impression.

    I myself tend to lean towards a literal six day (24 hour periods) creation account interpretation, but I like how the arguments by the I.D.M. (intelligent design movement) refutes those by the Darwinists.

  21. bar said

    I don’t have the exact quote, to many kindergarten comments from Charles and the evolution brigade to wade through.

    But a few months ago LGF poster Dan.G said that after 9/11 he was willing to put up with Christians because we had terrorist to fight, he thinks that time is now up and the Christians need to go home because they have no place in American society. Charles agreed with Dan.G and gave him a nice big plus.

    That is mind boggling… and yet Charles will do post after post about how in some Islamic nations the religious police / leaders do things like ban soccer, kite flying, Valentine’s Day cards, etc.

    Surely he has to see a differences between Christians and extremist Muslims?!

    and the Christians need to go home because they have no place in American society.

    That’s funny, because were it not for Judeo-Christian beliefs (especially that there is a Creator God, and He made us all equals), there would be no “American society” or the ideals that he respects. What hypocrites.

    trajan75 Says

    I did notice that Killgore Trout had been getting a lot of “hat tips” lately at LGF.

    As I said above, he gets very angry very quickly, even when it’s unjustified and unprovoked.

    If you’re a 3rd party observing the back and forth between Killgore Trout and believers there, I’d think you would be won over by the believers.

    Sometimes it’s not arguments that wins converts.

    I have an online friend who once said she dislikes all Christians, except for her mom and myself.

    The thing is, I never argue with this friend over faith, but she sees how I treat people – which is with kindness and respect, even when they’re being hostile.

    That made a positive impression on her.

    So if I were her, and I saw an exchange between Killgore Trout and a Christian, and the Christian is being polite, but Trout is sitting there being hateful, I don’t know if I’d be moved or swayed by any arguments he had to make.

    His attitude would be a turn-off, and I’d tune out anything he had to say.

    I just tried logging into LGF to leave a post, but I’ve been banned.

    I have no idea why. In the past couple of weeks, every so often, I’d leave links to web pages that had anti-Darwin content.

    I’m amazed that someone can get banned from a blog simply for expressing an opposing point of view.

    I was never nasty, mean, or rude, either.

    The blog owner must be very immature and tempermental. I have no other way of understanding why I was banned.

    I seem to have been blocked too – not for expressing opposing viewpoints, but for the simple fact that I foolishly revealed myself to be Catholic. I’m not against evolutionary theory (nor is the leader of our Church), but apparently that isn’t good enough.

    Nothing against Charles – contrary to some comments above, he happens to be a very smart and decent guy, despite his hatred for people holding to religious beliefs, and has fought the good fight against the dominant Left-leaning nonsense in the liberal media. I’ve nothing against the man or his site, and I likely will go back to read posts there in the future. He has a right to allow or ban whosoever he pleases on his blog, without explanation – that is his perogative – but it is also a privilege for him to have me and other intelligent Christians post their opinions on his site. If he wishes to disabuse himself of such opinions, that’s his loss.
