Last month, the Stokes County Board of Commissioners (in North Carolina) voted unanimously to put the words “In God We Trust” in the County Courthouse. While this is obviously a promotion of religion, legal arguments against it across the country have failed because advocates always argue “But it’s our motto!” and get away with it.
But resident Steven Hewett (below) is now trying to use the same script to advance his own slogan:
Darwin: the Voyage that Shook the World is a 2009 film produced by Creation Ministries International. It deceptively interviewed professors under false pretenses, not telling them it was being produced by a Creationist group. It only made an estimated $116,000.
And it cost the Australian taxpayers $500,000.
That’s according to an article in The Australian:
During a round of media broadcasts on the morning after his election to the post, he was asked by one interviewer: “Do you believe in God?”
“No,” Mr Clegg answered simply, during an appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live.
Wow. Very straight-forward for a politician. I love it!
But Clegg quickly clarified that his wife was Roman Catholic and their kids would be raised in that faith. *So, you know, don’t hate him for being godless.)
In 2010, Clegg became Deputy Prime Minister, a position he holds to this day, and a position he will likely have after the May 7 elections, since whichever party wins the most seats will still need his party’s support to form a coalition government.
