The other day, I posted about the smear campaign in Alabama against Bradley Byrne, which tried to impugn the man by saying, “Byrne supported teaching evolution…said the Bible was only partially true”. Byrne won a speck of sympathy from me, despite the fact that he’s a Republican, for at least standing up for the evidence.
That sympathy is gone now. Byrne has come back with a rebuttal.
• I believe the Bible is the Word of God and that every single word of it is true. From the earliest parts of this campaign, a paraphrased and incomplete parsing of my words have been knowingly used to insinuate that I believe something different than that. My faith is at the center of my life and my belief in Jesus Christ as my personal savior and Lord guides my every action.
• As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God. As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books. Those who attack me have distorted, twisted and misrepresented my comments and are spewing utter lies to the people of this state.
Well, screw you, too, you rednecked ignorant yokel. It’s a real shame that the people of Alabama are being served by fools and pandering morons. Now the Alabamans know who to vote against, I just hope there’s somebody sensible left in the field to vote for.
