Glenn Beck Attacks Bill Nye for Opposing the Teaching of Creationism to Kids

If you don’t support keeping children ignorant, you’re just like the people who imprisoned Galileo

Glenn Beck continues his headlong plunge into religious right extremism, attacking Bill Nye for his statement opposing the teaching of creationism to kids. And yes, he actually compared Bill Nye’s promotion of sound science to the Roman Catholic Inquisition against Galileo.

You can’t force things onto people. And that’s what I mean when I say Governor Cuomo is going to be on the wrong side of history. Because he’s among the increasing number of voices who want to segregate an entire group of people. He wants to eradicate a certain kind of thought. And that doesn’t work. And unfortunately his children or grandchildren will figure that one out, far too late, after his death most likely, that he was on the wrong side.

And you know what, he’s not alone though, I mean those people who are forcing Common Core into schools, I mean, think of Arnie Duncan in 30 years when his grandchildren say, “Did you really say, that the only people who were against Common Core were white suburban moms? Really?”

Or Bill Nye the Science Guy, who said teaching creationism is just dangerous and not appropriate for children!

BILL NYE: And I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that’s fine, but don’t make your kids do it because we need them.

How’s he going to look? Is he going to look like the people who threw Galileo up?

How people like Beck can say this batshit insane stuff with a straight face is beyond me. There’s something deeply wrong with this man.

"Wowie Zowie" is what [Pamela Zarubica] says when she's not grouchy...who would guess it could inspire a song? No one would guess. None of you are perceptive enough. *Why are you reading this?* -- Liner notes for "You Didn't Try to Call Me" (yes, really) on "Freak Out!"
