Paul Broun, Georgia Republican Who Dislikes Science, Obama, To Run For Senate
The congressman is well known on the national stage for his vitriolic and controversial statements regarding President Barack Obama. Just last week, Broun said to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that in his view, the "only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution.
Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA): An Anti-Science Legislator Who Serves on the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology
For the rest of this post, I’ll focus on Rep. Paul Broun, the chairman of the House Science Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight. Broun doesn’t just think that the “scientific community” has perpetrated a hoax about climate change—he also thinks scientists have made up lies about evolution, the age of planet Earth, the Big Bang Theory, and embryology…and that those lies come “straight from the pit of Hell.”
During a speech that Broun gave at the 2012 Sportsman’s Banquet at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell, Georgia on September 27th, he said this:
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. 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.
Some days, The News just makes my head hurt!

2. He's not the only one.
They're all over the place, usually GOP.
We're in real trouble if we don't run these clowns out of Congress. Vote!
