THIS has nothing to do with the evolution-creationism controversy, except that it involves everyone’s favorite Florida creationist, Rapturous Ronda Storms.
Last year we named Ronda the Creationist Queen of the Florida Senate for her fanatical zeal in promoting one of those anti-science, anti-evolution, pro-creationism bills modeled after the misleadingly-named Academic Freedom Act, promoted by the neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids).
Since then, Ronda has distinguished herself further by promoting a Godly License Plate Bill, with a cross and “I Believe” on it. But the bill failed. Then she declared war on the Dewey Decimal System. After that she launched a failed legislative initiative for Prayer in School,
But now, Ronda may have found her ultimate purpose in life. We present to you, dear reader, some excerpts from Church convoy offers free food, hope to struggling families, which appears in the Tampa Tribune. The bold font was added by us:
A compassionate convoy will converge on the Florida State Fairgrounds on Saturday and set up shop inside Expo Hall where hundreds of volunteers will offer free food, fun and encouragement to families who are struggling to make ends meet.
Volunteers from more than 75 Bay area churches expect to welcome as many as 9,000 people through the fairgrounds’ gates. The group will serve free lunch to all who attend and send every adult home with a bag full of groceries. There also will be free family photos, health screenings, haircuts, job counseling services and entertainment.
That’s wonderful, but what does it have to do with Ronda? You’ll have to read on to find out:
Nursing school students will offer basic health screenings, while officials from government and social service agencies will be on hand to answer questions. State Sen. Ronda Storms, R-Brandon, has signed up to braid children’s hair from 11 a.m. to noon.
Aha! Perhaps Ronda has finally found her true calling. And here’s one more excerpt:
Ron Showers, Convoy’s outreach coordinator [that’s Convoy of Hope, a nonprofit organization], said the poor and working poor are the group’s target audience, but anyone is welcome and there are no eligibility requirements, financial or otherwise.
That guy’s name is what inspired our title Hey, it’s a slow news day. We warned you this had nothing to do with The Controversy.
