Defining “Creationism” Down

Politics • Views: 2,365

Randy Barnett follows up his post on the appalling prevalence of creationists in the GOP, with a point I’ve also been hammering over and over: Defining “Creationism” Down.

If your favorite candidate is on record favoring creationism as science to be taught in government schools, he or she has already sunk himself on the national political scene whether you like it or not. Better find another candidate.

Indeed. Nice to see another conservative blogger who isn’t going to remain silent while pseudo-science wrecks the reputation of the GOP. Let’s see; we have me, Randy, and Allahpundit. Anyone else? Let me know and I’ll link your blog in this post.
