#589: Josh Craddock

Josh Craddock rose to fame when he, as a 19 year old student, got his first rant published in the WND. Unfortunately the rant didn’t really put Craddock in the best possible light. The contribution is discussed here. The screed in question was primarily a rant about how Focus on the Family and James Dobson have betrayed conservative Christian values and ”3,500 years of Judeo-Christian history” (over half the age of the earth!) by not being sufficiently anti-gay. I mean, officially Focus on the Family doesn’t want to throw gays in jail, and won’t deny them the right to hold public positions. Craddock’s article is also discussed here. Apart from that, Craddock is for the most part a rabid anti-abortionist who argues that Planned Parenthood and ”evolutionary racism” (i.e. eugenics) are two sides of the same coin.

Diagnosis: Full of youthful energy, and at the moment he is using it in the service of crazy. May still end up on the side of sanity, I suppose, but prospects seem currently rather bleak.

  1. I think you left you that he's an idiot and that he will use any event as a platform to proselytize.
