Three years ago we wrote about a brief but intense oubreak of creationism in the Brunswick County School Board (see Creationist School Board in North Carolina is Slapped Down). As you will see, there is no cure for creationism; it only goes dormant for a while.

Commissioner Sue thought that if they use a Christian legal outfit, then everything should work out. Hey, that sounds fool-proof! We found some information online about Bill Sue. He’s a smart man! What happened to his brilliant plan? Let’s read on:
Here’s some school board reaction:
“I think everybody on the school board would like to teach creationism,” [school board Chairwoman Shirley] Babson said in an interview. “We think that our nation has gotten so politically correct that there is no freedom of religion in America. They want freedom from religion.”
Everyone on the Board wants to teach creationism, but they’re not allowed to do it. This is an outrage! How did Commissioner Sue react? Here it comes:
“The older I get, the more I realize that we’re just here for a short period of time when it comes to eternity,” Sue said. “It just concerns me that this nation and a lot of its leaders are bringing us away from God.”
We haven’t heard the end of this. The good folks of Brunswick County aren’t going to give up. Bless ’em all!
