Pastor Ray Mummert is fighting to bring God back into the classroom and banish the teaching of Evolution in his small Pennsylvania town. In a news article about how a decision by the local school board ordering teachers to instruct their students that Evolution is “just a theory” and to teach Intelligent Design has left the citizenry deeply riven over the issue, Mummert essentially owns up to being a clueless moron:
“We’ve been attacked by the intelligent, educated segment of the culture,”
It always brings a tear to my eye to see idiots standing up for the right to try and drag everyone else down to their level of ignorance and superstition. You intelligent and educated people have no business trying to fill the heads of those impressionable children with facts when there’s a perfectly good fantasy that would suffice. Pastor Mummert has managed to survive for 54 years as a moron and if it’s good enough for him then it’s good enough for everybody. He’s just happy we have a President who’s just as much of a moron as he is:
“Christians are a lot more bold under Bush’s leadership, he speaks what a lot of us believe,” said Mummert.
And we all know that when you believe something then there’s no need for facts, knowledge, or actual Weapons of Mass Destruction. Truth doesn’t require supporting evidence, just blind faith.
