Congressman says evolution is a myth spread by Jews

Have you heard? Evolution was spread by Jews in order to bring Christians to the devil.

Well that’s what Rep. Ben Bridges (R-GA) believes anyways.

In a memo sent to lawmakers in California and Texas:

“Indisputable evidence - long hidden but now available to everyone - demonstrates conclusively that so-called ’secular evolution science’ is the Big Bang, 15-billion-year, alternate ‘creation scenario’ of the Pharisee Religion,” the memo said. “This scenario is derived concept-for-concept from Rabbinic writings in the mystic ‘holy book’ Kabbala dating back at least two millennia.”

Now I wasn’t aware that Darwin was able to time travel– I guess that’s another strike against him because that’d make him a witch or something.

And you tell me that Christians are the most discriminated group of people in the United States?

Give me a break. This is an elected official in Congress– he represents people– spreading hatred and ignorance. Am I the only one who sees why this may be a problem?

But it gets worse, the memo was circulated by another elected official in Texas.The memo directs people to the Fair Education Foundation, a group in Georgia, and gave its Web address, The site features items belittling the Holocaust and portraying Earth as stationary as depicted in the Bible, with Jewish thinkers like “Kabbalist physicist Albert Einstein” responsible for contrary scientific theories.

The Jewish watchdog group the Anti-Defamation League condemned the memo calling it “highly offensive.”

Yes, let’s blame the Jews for being intellectuals and for actually accepting the world around them for what it is.

Yes, let’s insult those who believe in evolution by calling them Jews.

I don’t get it, were the words meant as an insult?

Was it meant as a strike against Judaism and a way to preserve “traditional” Christian values?

I really do not understand where these lawmakers are coming from.

It just proves how desperate some people in religion can be in order to preserve a point that doesn’t hold up to common sense.

It’s sad really.
