FRC hosted a Speaker Series event yesterday to launch Austin Ruse’s new book Fake Science: Exposing the Left's Skewed Statistics, Fuzzy Facts, and Dodgy Data. In his remarks, Ruse made the perceptive observation that fake science is more dangerous than fake news because scientific statistics, no matter their dubious origins, tend to lodge in our brains and stay there, whereas fake news is simply superseded by the next news cycle.Here are some examples of the fake science that he cites in his book:Proponents of Missouri’s constitutional amendment to legalize cloning in 2006 argued that it would lead to a plethora of treatments and cures for incurable diseases. Eleven years later, not one treatment or cure has been produced.Sixteen years ago, Al Gore claimed that global warming would wipe out polar bears. Today, the polar bear population remains the same as it was when Gore made his claim.Homosexuality is said to be inborn and unchangeable. Researchers have in fact never found a “gay gene,” nor have they found that those identifying as homosexual have different brains than everyone else.The state of California claims that acrylamide, a naturally occurring chemical compound that is found in bread, cereal, cookies, potato chips, French fries, and other foods, causes cancer. In fact, one would have to consume 182 pounds of French fries per day to hit the cancer “danger zone.”Activists and some scientists claim that genetically modified rice causes cancer. This has never been proven and could in fact save hundreds of thousands from blindness and even death. Approximately 250,000 children go blind every year because they lack an essential mineral that is found in this kind of rice. The rice has never gone to market because environmentalists have held it up for over 25 years.Abortion advocates claim that pregnancy does not begin until the fertilized ovum attaches to the uterine wall. In fact, most medical textbooks and dictionaries still say that pregnancy, and therefore human life, begins at conception.Sexual revolutionaries in the 60’s said and continue to say that children do not need their moms and dads. In fact, social science data shows voluminously that children do best when raised in the home of their married biological mother and father—anything less than this increases the risk of the child developing dangerous pathologies.View the entire event to learn more about this important issue.
Dear Friends,From its very beginnings, America has always been the destination of freedom seekers. Immigrants from all over the world have flocked to America’s shores in the hope of finding something that their own native countries often lacked, but which they knew in their hearts must be possessed by every human person: freedom.But what is “freedom”? This is a debate that we continue to have as a country. As hundreds of U.S. citizens can attest, even a free democracy such as ours is prone to infringe upon the freedoms of its people unless it possesses a proper understanding of “freedom.”Many think that freedom is simply the ability to choose whatever one wants. The problem with this thinking is that when someone chooses evil, it is not only bad for that person but also bad for everyone who is affected by that person’s evil choice. True freedom, in the words of one author, “is a calling to realize in ourselves what is true about us, a calling to actualize in us all what is true, good, and beautiful.” This Christian understanding of freedom is not constraining, as many argue. Rather, it is freeing. How? Because “the more one does what is good, the freer one becomes. There is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just. The choice to disobey and do evil is an abuse of freedom and leads to ‘the slavery of sin.’”The lightness of being and the joy that we experience when we freely choose good is a testament to God’s design for freedom. This Fourth of July, let us celebrate the true freedom that Christ has fashioned in our lives and in our great country.Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research Council FRC ArticlesReport: Attacks On America’s First Freedom Increased 76 Percent In Three Years – Travis WeberWe Must Act While We Still Can – Tony PerkinsTrump, Congress Should Halt Transgender Military Policy that Costs Billions – Peter SpriggSupreme Court Delivers Big Wins for Religious Freedom – Travis WeberAbortion Activists are Still Trying to Put David Daleiden in Jail for Exposing Planned Parenthood – Tony PerkinsPentagon Transgender Agenda Won't Improve Military Readiness, Costs $3.7 Billion – Tony PerkinsTrump Set to Follow in Gipper’s Footsteps, Making Work Center of Social Welfare Policy – Ken BlackwellFRC’s Updated Hostility Report Shows Religious Organizations on the Front Lines of the Fight for Religious Freedom – Chris BaldacciSchool Board Rigs System for Transgender Win – Cathy RuseWhen Campuses Become Battlefields: Protecting Free Speech in a Hostile Environment – Ian FrithTaxpayer-Funded Transgender Tutorial for Schoolchildren Tanked – Cathy Ruse5th Circuit Rejects Effort to Take Down Conscience Protections – Travis Weber10 Things Every New Father Should Know – Dan Hart Religious LibertyReligious Liberty in the Public SquareNonprofit Tracker Smears Dozens of Conservative Organizations as ‘Hate Groups’ – Rachel del Guidice, The Daily SignalThe Southern Poverty Law Center Bears False Witness – Samuel D.
