Glenn Beck Compares people who oppose creationism, to the inquisition prosecuting Galileo
Yeah opposing teaching creationism is like punishing someone for heresy for stating the now well known, scientific fact, that the Earth rotates around the Sun. Not only is creationism not science, but no one in the US is persecuting creationists for their beliefs. Not being able to teach things like Intelligent Design in public schools isn’t the same thing. Galileo had to stand trial for his beliefs. He even spent the last years of his life under house arrest. Glenn Beck actually has more in common with the people who prosecuted Galileo for one reason, even through he’s not persecuting anyone, he’s denying reality, because he doesn’t want to accept it.
