The DI's Persecution Chic

The Discovery Institute is passing the collection plate and needs your money. Apparently they base their plea for help on one of the most ridiculous exaggerations you are ever likely to see:

As a regular Evolution News & Views visitor, you have been continually informed of the ways in which leading Darwinists have unleashed an unprecedented wave of persecution, propaganda, and paranoia in an effort to strangle an idea that they insist is already dead.

I treat this claim with all the respect it is due at Dispatches from the Culture Wars. Comments may be left there.
