A Putz Named Sue

Brunswick County, North Carolina, Commissioners Bill Sue and Scott Phillips think creationism needs to be a part of public school curriculum, right alongside the science of evolution.

“Darwin started out it was a theory, and by the time he got to the sixth chapter, it was fact,” Sue said Monday at a meeting between county commissioners and school officials. “Every theory that has ever been the basis of evolution has been disproven.”

Phillips asked school officials, “What can we do to get creation taught in our schools along with the theory of evolution?”
Well, the first thing you can do is take a million or two dollars out of the county's, no doubt bulging, coffers and set it aside to pay the legal fees of the ACLU and/or Americans United for Separation of Church and State when they sue you into submission. Or, of course, you can just stick the school district with the bill and take it out of the hide of the children of the county.

The local school Superintendent, Edward Pruden, tried to explain reality to these goobers, noting that the the Supreme Court has forbidden the teaching of creationism in public schools and pointing out:

Where much confusion comes in regarding evolution is the word “theory,” he explained.

“To laypeople by ourselves, [it] sounds unproven. When scientists use it, it’s backed up by repeated observation and study” …

“But the entire scientific community, with very few exceptions, support the theory of evolution. And by the term theory, they mean the repeated observation by scientific method coming to the same result.”
The putz named Sue isn't having any part of it though:

I’m tired of my taxpayers’ dollars going to pay the price to teach our kids a lie in the schools,” he said. “And when you have a teacher who is in a position of authority standing before a class of fifth-, sixth-graders telling them they come from a monkey, it has a traumatic influence and effect on them. And I’m ready to go wherever we need to go to change that lie that’s being taught.”
He'd much rather that taxpayer money go to the ACLU, no doubt.

They'll never give up, however:

Sue said he understood Pruden could not allow creationism to be taught as a science, but he was going to “find somebody that can take it somewhere, because [evolution] is a lie.”
It's almost certain that Sue took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States.

It's amazing, though perhaps not surprising, that those who proclaim their godliness so loudly are so unwilling to take their oaths seriously.

The Constitution, like the Bible, is a document that is frequently praised and affirmed by people who have never really read it and who would probably be shocked to find out what's actually in it.
