Texas School Board Chairman McLeroy Loses Leadership Post
by Christine Dao*
Texas State Representative Don McLeroy (R-College Station) narrowly lost his bid on May 28 to retain his position as chairman of the State Board of Education. The 19-11 vote, which ran strictly along party lines, failed the two-thirds majority required for the nomination to pass.
Opponents of McLeroy cited his creationist viewpoint as a leading factor in the vote, while defenders, such as Senator Steve Ogden (R-Bryan) stated, It is not fair to say that if you dont believe Darwins theory of evolution or accept the argument that global warming is occurring, that you should not be on the State Board of Education.
McLeroy had pushed to keep...

Evolutionists do not allow anyone to hold a faith different from their own. They are as dogmatic as Muslims in denying Christians their Biblical viewpoint.
How many times must it be said that Evolution is a religion? Here is yet more proof of it. They have taken the stand of, “If you don’t believe what we say, then you are not an educator”. Well, I do no know where they were educated, but I learned in college that you always question what you are reading and hearing and use facts and sound logic to come to conclusions. Evolutionists are guessing and hoping that their theory is true, they have no right to remove someone from leadership simply because they refuse to have faith in Evolution. That is not what education is about, and it most certainly isn’t what science is about. Where is the diversity that educators so praise every moment of their lives? Hypocrites, phony hypocrites.
Thanks for the ping!
That is why we must push back, and push back hard. We actually outnumber the Evos, but you would never know it by our actions.
A good lesson in “bipartisanship” for Senator Cornyn, but I don’t think he’s listening.
What is also sad is that the American people lack the ability to understand what you have explained here.
==Where is the diversity that educators so praise every moment of their lives? Hypocrites, phony hypocrites.
I never thought of it that way, but you are absolutely correct! I just wish Creationists and IDers would realize that we way outnumber the Evo-atheists, and start acting accordingly.
[[They are as dogmatic as Muslims in denying Christians their Biblical viewpoint]]
And worldnetdaily has an article showing that in California, those hwo have held bible studies i ntheir homes for decades, are now being targetted by officials- one couple has been told they will be fined in increasing amounts if htey continue to hold their bible studies because the state government is claiming htey are ‘breaking hte law’ by not having ‘environmental impact studies done’ (apparently because of the ‘impact’ that parking has on the area when folks park to go to the study), and they are goign to be required to apply for special permits that cost thousands
Apparently, only the government endorsed religion of secularism is allowed in public now, and apparently, if you are a secularist, you can meet anywehere you like as often as you like, and never be subjected to heavy burdens of hte government rules. I wodner if California will give superbowl party goers the same harrassments? I wonder if they will require family reuinion hosts who hold reunions each year to apply for permits that cost 1000’s of $$ etc? Yeah- didn’t htink so- and I doubt the government is goign to go after Muslims meeting every tuesday in someone’s home, or Atheists meeting every Wednesday in someone’s home etc- just hte Christians, because apparently, it’s just the Christians who impact the environment by parkign several cars in someone’s private driveway!
I know this is a serious issue, but I'm still amused that the evos are forced to publicly declare their opposition to critical thinking.
I got a good chuckle out of that myself :o)
Congratulations, you've worn them down!
Or they are just trying to lull me into a false sense of security :o)
C’mon people, the science is settled. Anybody who says otherwise is on a level with the Holocaust deniers.
Science? Who needs it when you have the Bible?
The UFO cultists are almost all Evos. Creationists tend not to fall for little green men on mars, astrology, Big Foot, and whatever other superstitions and fairytales the Evo-cultists generally fall for. Even geocentrism came from one of your fellow Evo-astrologists, Ptolemy. And it is the Creationists and IDers who are calling for open scientific debate between derwood’s atheist creation myth and Creation/ID. The darwin drones, who represent a small minority of Evo-cultists, are the ones who are behaving like thugs. We have the numbers to open up the debate, and that is exactly what we should do. We have no interest in using force to shut down the Darwin-cult. We want to destroy them in a scientific debate for all to see, which, be definition means, we want people to be able to make up their own minds.
