Santorum: ‘Science Should Get Out Of Politics’
Advertisements [?]
Rick Santorum is known for his insistence that religion has an important place in political life — and also for criticizing various examples of scientific consensus such as evolution, global warming, stem-cell research, human sexuality, and other matters. But in his latest pronouncement, he might have just outdone himself.

The Des Moines Register reports from a Santorum campaign stop at the University of Northern Iowa, where he talked about education:
Discussing controversial classroom subjects such as evolution and global warming, Santorum said he has suggested that “science should get out of politics” and he is opposed to teaching that provides a “politically correct perspective.”

This is what can happen to a deeply religious light weight mind with a tremendous ego.
