Candace Cameron Bure Attempts (and Fails) to Defend Creationism on The View

This morning on The View, co-hosts Joy Behar and Candace Cameron Bure (who happens to be Kirk Cameron‘s sister) got into a debate about Creationism.

Actually, to call it a debate is unfair, because Bure didn’t actually bother defending her Creationist beliefs.

The conversation began when the panel discussed Dr. Ben Carson and how one of his own advisers told the New York Times that Carson doesn’t really know anything about foreign policy.

Behar wanted to point out that she doesn’t find that surprising since Carson has also shown his ignorance with science and history. But the moment she said he “doesn’t believe in science,” Bure jumped in to explain why Carson’s denial of evolution is perfectly compatible with science.

Colorado Mesa University Discontinues Bible Giveaway at Nursing School Pinning Ceremony

Last week, I posted about a ceremonial “pinning” ceremony that takes place when nursing students graduate from Colorado Mesa University. It’s a way of welcoming them into the profession. But at CMU, when those graduates stepped off the stage, they were given a Gideons Bible.

There was no good reason for this, other than the lazy excuse of “tradition.” But if administrators were opening the door to Christians, then I guess atheists and Satanists could get on board, too, right?

The Western Colorado Atheists and Freethinkers sent a letter to the school explaining what their options were. Simply put, the school could allow giveaways of any and all religious materials or they could say no to everyone.

It appears that the school’s President, Tim Foster, has finally decided to say no to everyone.
