Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) tore into scientists as tools of the devil in a speech at the Liberty Baptist Church Sportsman’s Banquet last month.
“All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell,” Broun said. “And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior.”
According to Broun, the scientific plot was primarily concerned with hiding the true age of the Earth.
And with that, Broun, who is actually a member of the House Science Committee, disqualifies himself from civilized society.
Don’t believe anyone, and particularly a congressman, could be this stupidly crazy? Clearly you don’t know much about the Republican Party, a party more at home in the Dark Ages than in anything like Enlightenment.
Here… watch it. And bask not just in Broun’s head-up-his-theocratic-ass remarks but in the glorious background of severed deer heads (which reminds me that I can’t wait for the day deer fire back and take out some hunters in a similar manner).
