On Aug. 29, the Boston Globe reported that Palin was open to teaching creationism in public schools. That's true. She supports teaching creationism alongside evolution, though she has not actively pursued such a policy as governor.
In an Oct. 25, 2006, debate, when asked about teaching alternatives to evolution, Palin replied:Palin, Oct. 25, 2006: Teach both. You know, don't be afraid of information. Healthy debate is so important and it's so valuable in our schools. I am a proponent of teaching both. And you know, I say this too as the daughter of a science teacher. Growing up with being so privileged and blessed to be given a lot of information on, on both sides of the subject – creationism and evolution. It's been a healthy foundation for me. But don't be afraid of information and let kids debate both sides.A couple of days later, Palin amended that statement in an interview with the Anchorage Daily News, saying:Palin, Oct. 2006: I don't think there should be a prohibition against debate if it comes up in class. It doesn't have to be part of the curriculum.After her election, Palin let the matter drop. The Associated Press reported Sept 3: "Palin's children attend public schools and Palin has made no push to have creationism taught in them. ... It reflects a hands-off attitude toward mixing government and religion by most Alaskans." The article was headlined, "Palin has not pushed creation science as governor." It was written by Dan Joling, who reports from Anchorage and has covered Alaska for 30 years.
I think that the stance that Sarah Palin takes on the nefarious doctrine of Darwinism may be too gentle, but we have to keep in mind that she is in the field of politics, and if she took a hardline stance on the Truth, she'd have to contend with money raised for Iraq Hussein Osama by the teachers' unions and the scientists' unions. The passionate creationist may think that it would be foolish to compromise the Truth, and that she should come out completely against Darwinism. However, a pragmatical and eucuenemical approach to the situation is that Sarah Palin would probably not receive significantly more funds from her main constituencies that push for it (evangelical churches and organizations), and a hardline stance against Darwinism would undoubtely push the teachers' unions to donate even more money to the Democrats. (Personally, I think that privatizing the schools, or at least allowing school choice, would be the best course of action in the long run; in this way, the teachers' unions won't be able to influence the minds of our children. However, this would be even worse news for Sarah Palin.) (It would be unwise to forget the power the teachers' unions hold over our nation. Thanks to a Democrat Congress, not even the Great Reagan could smash them, and they continue to grow to this day.)
However, Sarah Palin's stance on the issue, even if it fails to completely satisfy our thirsts, is still reasonable, especially when compared to the Darwinists that advocate censorship of any other view that even questions the idiotic belief. Those that dare to take a hardline stance against Darwinism are often persecuted, and people that support Creationist thought are often shut out from secular organizations altogether. Darwinism is firmly ingrained in the lifeblood of our high school and college institutions, and to insinuate that we topple it immediately and with haste would likely end to our untimely demise, with another Kitzmiller v Dover throwing us off our guard.
Instead, Sarah Palin's support of mandating that Creationism at least be allowed to be discussed by the children is much more pragmatic. The mind of a child is a terrible thing to brainwash, and any steps that we can take at all to stop this tragedy would be an excellent thing. Ideally, the children who wish to debate Creationism will be given material that supports Creationism, along with the rest of the class; similarly, in order to appease the Darwinist mongrels, we'll have to give out similar sheets.
In order to get this into our schools, I think that we should have a referendum that allows this measure to be placed in to our schools, with the voting occuring by county. This will allow the most children of the United States to be influence by Creationism. In fact, if we use this method, some counties can even dispose of Darwinism entirely.
A President Palin, and possibly a President McCain influenced by a Vice President Palin, would surely allow at least this referendum to be voted on; a President Osama or a President Hidin would do their darndest to stop it. Now that we have a fairly conservative Supreme Court, they may also make no effort to stop it. As for the legislative, I don't think the Democrats should be permitted, by the law, to attempt to undermine it; after all, they are the ones that believe that the judicial branch should pass the law, and that the legislative branch should not interfere with it (as several of them have expressed over California's Proposition 8, which would rightfully ban gay marriage, and Proposition 4, which would at least require parents to be notified before their disgraceful daughters receive an abortion). If they tried to undermine it via the legislature, I think that a President Palin would call them out.
Under no circumstances would a President Palin mean that the grassroots can stop working to take over school boards, however. What President Palin would do is protect the rights of the grassroots to do what they want to do; a Commie Fascist Obama would work to silence these Americans. The Christian Coalition succeeded because of a combination of grassroots effort and the Republican Party leadership's apathy; the grassroots will be the ones to establish Creationism in our schools, with President Palin fending off the Darwinist hoards that try to steal our children's minds for their loot.
May Creationism reign supreme one day, and may Darwinism be cast into the dustbin of history!
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Update: THIS is abominable. Those poor children!
