Steve McConkey, the president of Underground Apologetics strongly condemned the University of Wisconsin's mascot, Bucky the Badger, for presenting Dr. James Thomson with a birthday cake and song. Dr. Thomson is famed for isolating human stem cells and for criticizing Bush for not fully supporting stem cell research.
McConkey had harsh words for the plush critter,
This may be a first for a school mascot to be used in supporting the culture of death. Adult stem cell research should be pursued instead of using embryos. As a UW fan, I am saddened that Bucky Badger was used for this cause.
