Palin, Creationism, and Fear [Update]

It seems Palin DIDN'T support teaching Creationism in school. As I said in an earlier post, enemies will spring out of the woodwork now that she's on the national stage, and they WILL use every dishonest trick in the book to make her look bad. One begins to wonder exactly how much people fear her, and why.

Update: Good lord. Obama and his people are more dishonest and slimy than I thought. What a bunch of tools. H/T Pastor Jeff.

No, I hadn't heard. Actually, I saw that on your site. I shoulda HT'ed.

Pastor Jeff,
You're right that its wrong to say she supports "teaching" creationism.

However,I would like to point out that the article you have linked to in your update has itself been updated to acknowledge that the Obama campaign was not actually behind the smear websites.

I like to think that neither of the presidential candidates would run campaigns that strike quite that low.

They're lower. They know they'll have surrogates do things like that for them, so they won't have to appear to sully themselves. That is, they're too gutless to do their own dirty-work.

You are all acting ignorant and holier than thou. Public schools should not be teaching theology, therefore no creationism. Don't waste my tax money on teaching backward ideas. Raise our children to new heights with a good education. If you want your kids to hear about creationism, send them to private school or home school.

And no one in this post (including Palin) is advocating that the schools should be teaching creationism. Try improving your reading comprehension, dumb ass.

In a 2006 gubernatorial debate, the soon-to-be governor of Alaska said of evolution and creation education, "Teach both. You know, don’t be afraid of education. Healthy debate is so important, and it’s so valuable in our schools. I am a proponent of teaching both."

Hmmm...that's pretty clear. She wanted to have it taught...end of story. She might have said something differently recently but that's what she said. IT'S ON RECORD. GET IT!? NO SMEAR...JUST FACT.
