War on science: Alabama’s “True Republican” TV ad mocks evolution
In the current Alabama gubernatorial primary race, there’s some serious mudslinging and general ugliness going on. True Republican PAC recently produced this campaign ad attacking conservative candidate Bradley Byrne for not being conservative enough. His crime? Bradley Byrne might believe in evolution!
Technorati reports the story and posts the “True Republican” TV ad:
Not to fear. GOP gubernatorial candidate Byrne quickly defended his beliefs:
As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God. As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books.
I’m so glad he had the courage of his convictions to set the record straight here.
