Note to Andrew S. et alia explaining this post: It looked as if the Newsroom Blog link to Nelson’s comments re atheists had gone dead and so I posted a screen grab of the post here. Since the link is live again, I’ve taken that down and left the link in its place. As far as the discussion below, it’s regarding a series of posts at Times & Seasons by BYU professor Ralph Hancock, who seems keen to become the new Mormon David Blankenhorn:
In voir dire, Boies noted that none of Blankenhorns marriage writing was peer reviewed. Nor has he taught courses about marriage, fatherhood, family structure or anything else. Blankenhorns examinations of the results of same-sex marriage are limited to discussions with colleagues and reading articles. His only peer-reviewed work was on cabinet makers and black fathers. Judge Walker indicated that were this a jury trial Blankenhorn might not be qualified to testify as an expert but that he can testify.
Of course, Blankenhorn then went on to testify and prove that he was eminently unqualified.
