Blast from Leiter’s and My Past: Phyllis Schlafly and Slippery Slopes

Brian Leiter has recently re-upped his criticism of one of my old blog posts — from 2008, back when the iPhone was only a year old. (TL; DR — an expression that also didn’t exist back in ‘08 —- I thought that Phyllis Schlafly should not be disqualified for an honorary degree because of her opinions, and Leiter thought she should be).

In the same nostalgic spirit, I am re-upping my response to Leiter in the form of a taxonomy of slippery slopes. So crank up Sara Bareilles, break out those old Obama “HOPE” posters, and enjoy!

Sure. I'm sure that will clarify things!

Regarding “slippery slopes”, and the denial of human personhood, I suppose if I could “go back in time and witness one day in constitutional history, what would it be and why”, I would go back to the creation of The Declaration Of Independence, to “We hold these Truths to be self-evident and substitute the words, that every son or daughter of a human person, has been Created, from the moment of Conception, equal in Dignity, while being complementary as a beloved son or daughter, Willed by God, Worthy of Redemption, for “all Men are Created equal”.
That way, there would be no question as to the inherent Dignity of the human person, and the very idea of the possible objectification of the human person through the act of slavery, abortion, or reordering persons according to sexual desire/inclination would be null and void, regardless of the number of Supreme Court Justices.

“...referred to her ignorance about the theory of evolution by natural selection, the foundation of modern biological science, which she regularly claims is not well-supported by evidence and is just a "liberal" dogma.

It is important to note that that moment in time when ape became ape/man, and ape /man became man, would have to have occurred at the moment of conception. Surely there is no evidence for that, so how could that, whatever that is, in reality, be “the foundation of modern biological science”.

Thank God, our inherent Dignity comes from God, and that we are not, in essence, beloved sons and daughters of ape or ape/man for that matter.
