Bryan Fischer isn’t the only swivel-eyed loon at the far right American Family Association. Their “
governmental affairs director” Sandy Rios is also a special piece of work, and today RightWingWatch highlights her authoritative statements about the theory of evolution: Sandy Rios: ‘The Real Experts’ Know Evolution Has Been ‘Disproven’.
According to Rios, evolution has been completely “disproven” and all the real scientific experts (like her) know it. So why are so many so-called “scientists” still pushing this false, discredited idea? Because it’s now a “religion.”
“Evolution has become the religion of the elite,” Rios said. “It’s a religion to the [level of] fanaticism of what they would say was the people at the Scopes monkey trial, the Christians waving their Bibles who were not really thinking through the facts, they were just outraged because it was against God’s law. The truth of the matter is that the evolutionists like George Will, waving their evolutionary theory, have become as rabid and unreasoned as what they accuse the Scopes monkey religionists of doing to Darwin during that time. It has become a religion. Science has disproven so much of evolution…. These guys are wrong, Scott Walker is right.”
I’m always amazed when creationists try to use “religion” as an insult. Don’t they realize they’re implicitly insulting themselves? It’s the very definition of self-beclowning.
