Texas State Board of Education candidate Mary Lou Bruner won big in Texas on Tuesday night when she won 48.5 percent of the vote, securing herself a spot in the state’s runoff election.
Bruner, who believes that climate change is a Marxist “hoax” and actually believes that President Obama was a male prostitute in his early twenties. No really, she actually said:
Obama has a soft spot for homosexuals because of the years he spent as a male prostitute in his twenties. That is how he paid for his drugs. He has admitted he was addicted to drugs when he was young, and he is sympathetic with homosexuals; but he hasn’t come out of the closet about his own homosexual/bisexual background.
Bruner has the chance to decide what goes into the textbooks about not only the state’s K-12 educational system but much of the country as well. This is because textbook manufacturers often look to Texas for educational standards because of the large textbook order they make and then reuse those textbooks around the nation, rather than print multiple versions.
And just how biased are her beliefs towards Christianity and how will this affect her ability to help decide what goes into textbooks? Well, if she is elected, be ready for your kids to believe that Noah’s ark is a true story.
To the television reporter who asked me while the camera was rolling if I REALLY believe there was a man named Noah who built an Ark and filled it with pairs of animals, and the entire world was covered with water: THE ANSWER IS STILL “YES, I believe the Holy Bible. I believe there was a Great Flood. How do YOU explain fossils of seashells and other sea animals on tops of mountains all over the world? How do you explain the Grand Canyon? You are very naive if you believe a tiny river carved out the Grand Canyon. I believe it took a lot more water than that to carve out the Grand Canyon and other land and rock formations formed by water erosion. You can call me ignorant or intolerant or whatever you want, but I did not make fun of YOUR religion.
That’s right, if she doesn’t land this job, I am sure Ken Ham has a spot for her at the Ark Encounter.
Once again, Texas is armed and ready to screw up the entire nation. We cannot stand by and just allow an entire state of backwards thinkers to come in and destroy childhood education with their fairy tales and conspiracy theories.
Texas liberals who care about education, not only in their own state but around the country need to start acting now and put an end to this nonsense. Get out and vote, campaign and make sure this nut doesn’t see a day in charge of education.
