Lies from hell
A Republican in the American state of Georgia has stirred up a media storm after standing at a church sponsored banquet and declaring that evolutionary theories are ‘lies straight from the pit of hell’.
According to reports from MSNBC, the medical doctor Paul Broun’s views were videoed during the dinner and publicised widely online by a progressive political watchdog group, the Bridge Project.
The report claimed that Dr Broun has already made a name for himself as a conservative Christian, due in part to his unsuccessful campaign to have 2010 declared ‘The year of the Bible’. The doctor also chairs the House Science Committee’s panel on investigations and oversight.
Quoted in the MSNBC report, Dr Broun said, ‘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.
‘And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a Saviour’.
