    Default Congressman calls evolution lie from 'pit of hell'

    ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia Rep. Paul Broun said in videotaped remarks that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory are "lies straight from the pit of hell" meant to convince people that they do not need a savior.

    The Republican lawmaker made those comments during a speech Sept. 27 at a sportsman's banquet at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell. Broun, a medical doctor, is running for re-election in November unopposed by Democrats.

    "God's word is true," Broun said, according to a video posted on the church's website. "I've come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and 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 are taught that from understanding that they need a savior."

    Broun also said that he believes the Earth is about 9,000 years old and that it was made in six days. Those beliefs are held by fundamentalist Christians who believe the creation accounts in the Bible are literally true.

    9000 years old eh? Good luck my American friends, these are the people running your country. Unfortunately, Canadian politicians aren't any smarter.

    That guy comes from a backwards part of this fine nation. Let's hope that something happens between now and election day since he's running unopposed. I donno, tornado, lightning, alien abduction - he won't be missed.

    So let me get this straight.....there is a religious group of folks who call themselves "fundamentalist Christians" and they believe the Earth is 9,000 years old? In spite of a never ending pile of indisputable scientific proof to the contrary? And these folks run for political office? How about "mentally dysfunctional Christians".......

    How about that, huh? We also have people in our government who believe that a 12 yr old girl should be able to prostitute her body if she wants to. Go figure, huh?

    Wow. This has to be the DUMBEST thing any politician has ever said. I can't believe nobody will run against this idiot. No wonder America is behind other countries in Science. European nations laugh at us when they here this idiocy.

    Republicans got God.

    A new poll suggests they are much more likely to go to church than Democrats.

    A Gallup Poll shows that 40% of Republicans say they attend church weekly.

    Twenty-one percent say they attend nearly weekly or monthly, and 38% say they seldom or rarely go to church.

    Compare that to only 27% of Democrats who say they go to church
    every week, 20% who say they go monthly and 52% of Democrats who say they seldom or never go to church.

    These polls also show that Democrats are less religious than the average American, and Republicans are more religious.

    Consider this: Almost one in five Democrats identify with no religious faith compared to only one in 10 Republicans who feel that way.

    This might explain why religion often seems to play a more prominent role when it comes to Republican politicians, especially during primaries.

    This time around in the GOP horse race for president:

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry held a major prayer session in Houston before he announced his candidacy. Perry has also been known to pray for President Obama. In April, the Texas governor designated a three-day period as "days of prayer for rain" in his drought-stricken state.

    Faith also plays a large role in Michele Bachmann's candidacy. While giving an economic speech just Tuesday, Bachmann suggested the United States return to its Judeo-Christian roots to bring back economic responsibility, "Cry out to holy God. It's not too late. He can save us."
