Texas State Board of Education Candidate is a Creationist Who Thinks Obama Was a “Male Prostitute”

The Texas Board of Education has long been a punchline for the rest of the country.

There was the time when it was led by Creationist Don McLeroy, who did all he could to dismantle the teaching of proper science in the classroom. There was the time after he left when the Board approved textbooks suggesting Moses influenced the writing of the Constitution. There was the time the Board was led by evolution-doubter Barbara Cargill.

In San Antonio this week, the story revolved around what a Christian pastor said.

When Pastor Theo Wolmarans said his prayers to open up the meeting, he used his time to throw everyone who didn’t believe as he did under the bus:

This is the Man Who Created Ted Cruz

If Ted Cruz frightens you, then his father Rafael Cruz should give you nightmares. He’s the mastermind(less) behind the whole operation. He’s a Christian pastor who believes every conspiracy theory he’s ever heard and makes Sarah Palin look like a Jeopardy champion.

Not all children resemble their parents, especially in ideology.

In this case, however, they’re practically clones. You’ll get a strong taste of what a Cruz presidency would look like in the video below:
