Rubio is a Catholic, is he not? The Catholic church is, I believe, able to accept the scientific age.

Except for when they are politicians pandering for the luddite evangelical vote.

Yes he is but that doesn't stop Santorum and other Catholic GOP politicians either.

Yes, the Catholic church does, but the Teabagger fundamentalists don't, so Rubio has to go with the more important constituency. And he's supposed to be one of the "new" breed of Republicans, like his creationist brother Republican Bobby Jindal.

Jindal is also a Catholic and unlike the whackado Protestants, the Catholic church accepts Darwinian science. But again, Catholics are not the base of the GOP, snake handling Protestants are.

Rubio does not know how old the earth is. Just like how old Barack Obama is, or what country the President was born in.

Blow off Snowden all you like, but what was revealed to be true is still true. The NSA lacks oversight with power. FISA is already too much and now they casually exceed even that generous provision. The world first learned ...
