Beck: Bill Nye Is Like Those Who Tried To Silence Galileo

On his television broadcast last night,
Glenn Beck again dedicated his opening
monologue to decrying Governor Andrew
Cuomo's recent comment that "extreme
conservatives ... have no place in the
state of New York," warning that Cuomo
is on the wrong side of history and
will be looked back upon with shame by
future generations.

But it is not just Cuomo who is on the
wrong side of history; so are
supporters of Common Core and even Bill
Nye, because, according to Beck, his
opposition to teaching Creationism
makes him no different from those who
tried to silence Galileo:

Is this the kinder, gentler Beck? I haven't heard of anyone talking about imprisoning Creationists or anything close. We simply don't want religion with no scientific backing, taught in Science class. Why is that so horrible?

 


Thank God......it's Friday!!!

He needs his meds adjusted. He needs to go to Colorado for a week, mellow his ass out.

Sure thing. I can totally see how not wanting someone's religious agenda to be put into a science class is the same as threatening to kill them.

Religion belongs in churches, not science class. Creationism should be covered in an Arts and Humanities class, not science class. It's not horrible to expect that. It's reasonable.

OMG, the irony is hilarious.   Galileo was arrested and tried by the church for heresy for having scientific beliefs that didn't follow the Bible.     His belief, if I recall correctly - there has been a few of these guys and it's easy to mix them up - is that the earth went around the sun rather than the sun orbiting the earth.   Turns out the Church was wrong, lol.

Poor Beck.

Poor guy. Yesterday I read a post that made him sound rather normal. Today...this shows he's not.
