Gundamentalism

I shared the above image with the following comment from me: I continue to hear from people who don't think America has a problem.

Blaming Evolution for Tragedy

I am very disappointed that Rick Warren would use the occasion of the horrible tragedy in Aurora, Colorado to make an inane, stupid swipe at evolution.
