We pretty much know who the creationists are among the GOP presidential candidates. The last time we posted about it was Jon Huntsman on Evolution & Global Warming. And our big, all-encompassing post which we started in mid 2009 and keep updating is Which 2012 Presidential Challengers Are Creationists?
To simplify things, they’re all creationists, except for Huntsman, Gingrich, and Romney. But until today we’ve been unable to pin down Herman Cain. The question of his position came up in comments to this post about creationist legislators, but nobody had any answers.
It may not matter any more, considering the press maelstrom in which Cain’s being swirled around, but we think we’ve got him figured out. Check out this story in the Miami Herald — Herman Cain’s Florida team largely silent on allegations.
Most of the article is about all the sexual harassment allegations that are bouncing around in the media. We have no opinion about any of that at this point. But the mess has brought something to our attention. The Herald says, with bold font added by us:
From grassroots activists to elected officials leading the Cain campaign in Florida, most supporters say they have yet to see solid enough evidence to soften their support.
“Naturally it gives me pause, and I pay attention to sexual harassment having been sexually harassed myself and being in a male-dominated field,’’ said state Sen. Ronda Storms, a Cain supporter from Valrico.
That essentially clinches it. Ronda Storms was the creationist queen of the Florida Senate back in 2008. See: Buffoon Award Winner — Ronda Storms. To remind you of Ronda’s glory days three years ago, see Her Most Rapturous Moment. Here’s Rapturous Ronda’s page at the Florida Senate’s website.
It’s difficult to believe that anyone would sexually harass Ronda, but that’s a side issue. The important thing is that she wouldn’t endorse anyone for President without being certain that he was a flaming, full-blown creationist.
Is there anything else in the Herald article besides Ronda’s support? Oh yes, there’s also this:
“Based on what’s in the public domain so far … it would be unfortunate for these (accusations) to be something that would remove him from the race. …I’m hoping the press will really drill down into the backgrounds and motivations of the two accusers,” said state Rep. Scott Plakon, R-Longwood, a top Cain supporter in Florida.
There’s much more in that news article, but we found what we wanted. It’s clear — at least to us — that Herman Cain is a creationist.
