Missouri: Creationist Loses Re-election Bid
Twelve year Columbia school board vetern Elton Fay lost his bid re-election to a fifth term, garnering just 25 percent of the vote in the April 5 election, according to the Columbia Missourian.
During the election, Fay, 58, came under fire by the public and the news media for statements he made challenging the teaching of evolution as fact rather than as a theory of creation. Fay, who attends Forum Boulevard Christian Church, also said he thinks schools would suffer without an acknowledgement of God.
