|Georgia State House Rep. Ben Bridges (R), chairman of the retirement committee in the state house has exposed the conspiracy to teach Evolution as a Jewish plot to destroy Christianity! Josh Marshall has the story.
Oh, and did I mention that the same sect of Jewish Pharasees is also selling the false notion that the Earth revolves and also that the Earth circles the Sun?
"It seems that the actual author or analyst, I guess you might say, was a fellow named Marshall Hall, the husband of Bridges campaign manager, Bonnie Hall. Then they sent it out over Bridges' signature to state legislators in Texas, California, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Ohio. And they didn't stop by letting the cat out of the bag on evolution. They also blew the whistle on all this hokum about the earth revolving around the Sun. These people are elected legislators who are voting on laws to apply to all of us, and they are being driven by an irrational heresy of Christianity. They seriously fear that American society in general is out to destroy their beliefs - and they are correct. Society cannot function when a sizeable number of the members adhere to this insanity.
Barnes' memo pointed fellow state legislators to the information at fixedearth.com which rails against the “a mystic, anti-Christ ‘holy book’ of the Pharisee Sect of Judaism” and claims that “the earth is not rotating … nor is it going around the sun.” They've even caught on to the "centuries-old conspiracy" on the part of Jewish physicists to destroy Christianity.
Now, it was down in Texas that things started to spin out of control. Warren Chisum (R), House Appropriations Committee Chairman in the Texas state House, took the memo from his friend Bridges and used the House operations system to distribute the memo throughout the legislature. (Here's Chisum's cover letter and the Bridges' memo.)
The ADL caught wind of the Bridges memo and now Chisum says he's "willing to apologize if I've offended anyone" if anyone got their big nose bent out of shape."
