Media Round-Up on Judge Jones

WorldNetDaily is covering the Judge Jones’ copying story, as is the Associated Press, The York Dispatch, and the AgapePress (note: the last article inacurrately states that we are faulting Judge Jones for “plagiarism,” which we aren’t; he copied extensively from the ACLU, but in judicial circles that would not be called plagiarism).

Blogs weighing in include Uncommon Descent, Sandwalk, Reasonable Kansans, Darwinian Fundamentalism, and Doubting Darwin. The discussion going on at Sandwalk is particularly fascinating. There pro-Darwin biochemist Larry Moran expresses his disillusionment about being misled about the “brilliant” Judge Jones. The responses posted by fellow Darwinists who won’t tolerate any criticism of the Judge or his decision are especially illuminating.
