Well there’s no doubt about it, Charles would appear to be right here: Rush is a creationist. I don’t know if Rush wants Creationism taught in our Public Schools - as does the Disco Institute - as part of science classes, but it seems to me that Rush was making a few Rhetorical flourishes here as well and used the Creationism meme for his introduction which he ended with

And while I do not denigrate the creationist crap that preceded his first remark about Obama quoted above, and while I have said many times out here that I do think a belief in God and a belief in Evolution are not inherently contradictory and I DO NOT WANT Creationism taught in our public schools, I think a lot of what he was saying was by way of introducing or “preparing” his listeners to the longer quote I referenced above: he’s really after Obama.

Agreed - I think Rush was “using absurdity to be absurd” in this case. I know he thinks of himself as a christian, but he does not make that part of his program hardly at all.

I have never heard Rush talk like a creationist, ever, and I listen to him every day and have since 1993.

I have heard him say that evolution and a belief in G-D are not mutually exclusive. I come down on that side of the argument as well.

Maybe we can step back a bit and not condemn Rush. Why don’t you ask him what he thinks? He reads this blog.
