GOP candidate defends his creationist beliefs
What’s wrong with this particular story: a GOP candidate gets “accused” of supporting the teaching of evolution in classrooms, and of saying the Bible is not the infallible word of God, and his reaction to the ad is to re-affirm his commitment to the idea the Earth is only 6000 years old.
As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God. As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books. Those who attack me have distorted, twisted and misrepresented my comments and are spewing utter lies to the people of this state.
This fucking moron is actually proud he’s fought to ensure students in Alabama will be grossly under-prepared for the realities of the world outside their precious religious bubble. Now I know what you’re thinking: that Alabama is full of chicken-fuckers who don’t know their ass from their elbows, but you’ve got to figure there are at least a few reasonable people who object to the fact the biggest controversy in this Governor race is whether or not a candidate blindly follows his Christian teachings. Please tell me there are, otherwise I’m going to have to start drinking heavily…
