With the race with Bill White as close as it is, Rick Perry has decided to lay on the religiosity quite thick. Not only does he think the Texas Board of Education is doing a bang up job, he supports teaching creationism in Texas schoolrooms:
Explain where you stand on evolution-creationism being taught in school.
I am a firm believer in intelligent design as a matter of faith and intellect, and I believe it should be presented in schools alongside the theories of evolution. The State Board of Education has been charged with the task of adopting curriculum requirements for Texas public schools and recently adopted guidelines that call for the examination of all sides of a scientific theory, which will encourage critical thinking in our students, an essential learning skill.
Once again he shows why he has the nickname “Governor Goodhair”. Hopefully he’ll be “Ex-Governor Goodhair” before long.
