Ron Paul Doesn't Accept Evolution

The one and only anti-war Republican presidential candidate didn’t raise his hand when asked who doesn’t believe in evolution, but it turns out he may have wanted to. In this clip, Paul responds to a question about the incident by saying that it was an “inappropriate question,” but that “I think it’s a theory — theory of evolution — and I don’t accept it.”

Paul hasn’t been hiding his religious convictions. He wrote back in 2003 that the “secular Left” has been waging a war on religion and Christmas and that “[t]he notion of a rigid separation between church and state has no basis in either the text of the Constitution or the writings of our Founding Fathers.”

And in case you think Truthdig has nothing nice to say about Ron Paul, read our own voice from the “secular Left,” Truthdig Editor Robert Scheer — who believes in the separation of church and state, it’s true — cheering for the libertarian from Texas.

Hat tip for the clip and the war-on-religion article goes to The Largest Minority.
