Moral Decline

As we all know, the real knock against evolution is that it destroys morals.

That's why it was such a shock to learn that Ralph Reed, the former head of the Christian Coalition and candidate for Lt. Gov. in Georgia, must have been a closet Darwinist.

How else are we to explain the fact that the baby-faced Reed was taking millions from convicted Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff -- after it was suitably laundered by passing it through Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform, of course -- to mobilize Christian conservatives to protest proposed tribal casinos so that Abramoff could milk the tribes for higher fees.

Reed lost his bid for Lt. Gov. in the Georgia primary election yesterday in a humiliating 55-45 defeat.

Here in Kansas, there's a primary election coming up in less than two weeks.

Connie Morris, one of the conservative family values candidates running for re-election in order to rid the state of godless Darwinism -- and the moral decline that inevitably follows the teaching of that dread theory -- doesn't quite have Reed's golden touch, but she's demonstrated that one of her family values includes billing the taxpayers for a lavish junket to Miami -- which just happens to be close to where her daughter lives.

Although there are no magnet schools in her district, Morris felt compelled to attend the Magnet Schools of America conference in Miami and to stay in a $339 a night beachfront room at the Fountainebleau Hilton Resort.

Of course, after news of Morris' expense report hit the papers, which she claims don't tell the truth about her, Morris sulked a bit before agreeing to repay the money.

Do you suppose she's a closet Darwinists, too?
