I don’t usually write “look at this stupid thing this guy said” comments, but this comment by John C. Wright is too jaw-dropping not to share with someone (I cannot bear this burden alone!).
Not just because Wright equates homosexuality with bestiality, pederasty, and necrophilia; that Wright has terrible, indefensible opinions is not news. But his actual argument would be the star exhibit in a museum of terrible logic. Here, read this, and keep in mind, it’s all one sentence: (Edited: Nope, two sentences! I missed a period in there, somehow.)
The first step was to agree to cease to fight over religion, but to hold all religions opinions as being private, therefore too private to be discussed; then society agreed religion was irrational hence not able to be discussed at all; then society agreed that, since religion was irrational, any moral rules not grounded in pragmatic experience were nonbinding, a matter of private opinion; then society held that one’s opinion of pragmatism, or one variations of experience, eliminated even the possibility of a consensus on these points, and that even the contents of reality were a matter of opinion; and then it was held that to believe reality was real equaled making a judgment equals being judgmental equal being prejudiced equaled being bigoted equaled being racist equaled being a genocidal maniac on par with Hitler. Hence, to observe that men should act with self control in the sexual area became the same as promoting the mass extermination of the Jews: and so every children’s book character or cartoon character, from Dumbledore to Avator Korra to Batwoman to the characters in Order of the Stick to each and every character from each and every episode of DOCTOR WHO that is revealed as being a pervert, or revealed as approving wholeheartedly of perversion, is another Jew whom the leftist, seeing himself as Schindler, allows to escape from the death camp.
This is in the comments to a post in which Wright seems (as best as I can make out through the thicket of overwrought prose) to be arguing that, data be damned, it’s just not possible that most Harry Potter fans are liberals, because liberals would hate any narrative in which the Death-Eaters don’t win.
