Alabama Political Ad Attacks Belief in Evolution

A group called “True Republican PAC” has released an ad attacking Republican gubernatorial candidate Bradley Byrne (formerly a Democrat) for supporting evolution and believing the Bible is not 100 percent literally true.

The most disappointing part: Byrne, a former member of the State Board of Education, has responded to the attack by denying he believes in evolution. As he writes on his Web site:

As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God. As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books. Those who attack me have distorted, twisted and misrepresented my comments and are spewing utter lies to the people of this state.
