Paul Broun: Evolution, Big Bang 'Lies Straight From The Pit Of Hell'
Congressman Paul Broun (R-Ga.) said last week that evolution and the big bang theory are "lies straight from the pit of Hell."
"God's word is true. I've come to understand that. 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," said Broun, who is an MD. "It's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior."
"You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I've found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth. I don't believe that the earth's but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them. That's what the Bible says."
Broun made headlines in 2009 for trying to make 2010 "the year of the Bible."
This where it gets into SNL Territory. He's a member of the SCIENCE Committee--along with Rep (Women's Mystery Parts Believer) Todd Akin.
Now keep in mind the Repubs also put Michelle bachman on the INTELLIGENCE Committee. There has to be a couple of guys in a backroom somewhere saying 'Let's aassign these people to these committees--and watch the Dems heads explode...'

I have no problem...
with someone wanting to believe that.
I have a major problem with him -- and Akin -- being on the House SCIENCE Committee.
In that position, they are both poised to obstruct the government's contributions to science and threaten America's role as the world leader in sciences.

Meanwhile in Arkansas ...
"Arkansas Republican Rep. Jon Hubbard calls slavery ‘blessing in disguise’; GOP Republican State House candidate Charlie Fuqua advocates deporting all Muslims"
Hubbard wrote in his 2009 self-published book, “Letters To The Editor: Confessions Of A Frustrated Conservative,” that “the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise.” He also wrote that African-Americans were better off than they would have been had they not been captured and shipped to the United States.
Fuqua, who served in the Arkansas House from 1996 to 1998, wrote there is “no solution to the Muslim problem short of expelling all followers of the religion from the United States,” in his 2012 book, titled “God’s Law.”
“I think my views are fairly well-accepted by most people,” Fuqua said before hanging up, saying he was busy knocking on voters’ doors.

This is scary stuff...
I don't want some dark ages throwback casting votes in the Houses. Are the people in the south really so ignorant to elect goobers like this? I don't want religion being behind the govt. That is why there is a separation of church and state. God help us if this guy gets any real power. What a nut case. I can't pin it all on the south...what the hell is wrong with the good people of MN for electing that crazy ass Bachman??

Arkansas used to have an unofficial motto...
"Thank God for Mississippi."
Mississippi looks like New York or California by comparison after this pair of un-American losers.

Another week; another, different, GOP rep...
"A Republican member of the Arkansas House of Representatives has a history of writing in support of slavery and the Confederacy, along with comparing Abraham Lincoln to Karl Marx.
State Rep. Loy Mauch (R-Bismarck) wrote a series of letters to the editor of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, defending slavery and attacking Lincoln, the Arkansas Times reports.
The revelations about Mauch's letters come days after it was reported that state Rep. Jon Hubbard (R-Jonesboro) wrote that slavery "may have been a blessing" in a 2010 book.
Mauch, a first term legislator, wrote the letters starting in 2000. He has called Lincoln a "fake neurotic Northern war criminal" and said the 16th president committed "premeditated murder" on the Constitution. He called Lincoln and Civil War generals "Wehrmacht leaders" -- the name for the armed forces in Nazi Germany. He also praised his ancestors for standing up to "Northern aggression" and said the Confederate flag is "a symbol of Christian liberty vs. the new world order."
In two letters, Mauch wrote about the Bible and slavery. The Arkansas Times quotes from a letter Mauch wrote in 2009:
"If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861?"
In 2010, it was reported that Mauch was a member of the Sons of Confederates Veterans and the League of the South, which has been described as a "neo-Confederacy" group advocating for second southern secession. Mauch was also reported to have chaired the western Arkansas chapter of the League of the South, which he downplayed as an honorary title. He also helped organize a 2004 conference calling for the removal of an Abraham Lincoln statue in Hot Springs, which included a keynote speech entitled "Homage to John Wilkes Booth.""
And some people call muslims ignorant and uneducated?
