The petition is here. Its arguments were addressed in the earlier thread, but this has made no impact on these philosophers. I applaud them, though, for signing their their names to this, rather than "signing" anonymously (which is tantamount to not signing--the same person could "sign anonymously" 200 times). So far it has 39 actual signatures; I shall be interested to see how it fares over the coming weeks. (The original petition now has over 1200 signatures; I am surprised, frankly, that it does not have more, given how reasonable its position is: the APA should either enforce its non-discrimination policy, or abandon it. If this involved racial discrimination, no one [one hopes!] would hestitate in the least just because some religious traditions sanctioned such discrimination.)
Comments on the merits of the new petition are welcome. Signed comments only, and keep it substantive.
UPDATE: I realize this petition is highly offensive to many people, but I would really urge folks not to post 'fake' signatures. I am genuinely curious to see which philosophy professors are willing to sign their name to this. The enterprise ought to proceed without Cyber-vandalism.
ADDDENDUM: May I ask that the jackass who keeps adding my name to this petition stop this childish vandalism. No one believes I would sign it, so you are just wasting the time of the petition organizers, who have to then remove my name.
