Needless to say, it's an emotive subject. Bringing up Bayesian inference isn't really as effective as you might expect when you're talking about something people feel so strongly about. It's just a shame that people can be so secure in their conclusions, convictions and rhetoric that they won't examine their arguments for the same.
In this case, I think the author is broadly correct. But I don't think the author's arguments are. And I think to ignore that would be doing a disservice to the correct conclusions reached.
