Last week we wrote New Jersey Governor Chris Christie: Creationist? The New Jersey Governor, considered a potential (but reluctant) Republican candidate for President, had said that teaching creationism should be decided by local school boards.
The press isn’t leaving the issue alone. In the Star-Ledger, one of the newspapers hosted at NJ.com, “the online home of Jersey’s 12 largest and most prominent newspapers,” we read Gov. Christie won’t say if he believes in evolution or creationism. Here is one excerpt, with bold font added by us:
Gov. Chris Christie refused to comment when asked if he believes in evolution or the theory of creationism when asked at a press conference earlier today.
“That’s none of your business,” Christie said.
What’s going on here? We’ll tell you what your Curmudgeon thinks. If Christie were content with being Governor of New Jersey, then why should he care about disclosing his opinion about evolution and creationism? It wouldn’t have any effect because he’s already been elected Governor. But he’s not content with that office.
We think Christie is going to run for President and he doesn’t want to alienate the hard-core creationist GOP base. There’s no other explanation. Christie’s in the Presidential race. You heard it here first.
