Corey Bernstein is a 17-year-old resident of New Jersey and co-chair of the Youth Caucus at Garden State Equality, the state’s organization for LGBT civil rights. In an email sent to [creationist nutbag Kirk] Cameron through his manager on Friday, Bernstein wrote that he had “endured brutal bullying” in high school because he was gay, and invited Cameron to a lunch on Saturday along with other members of the LGBT community in Ocean Grove.

"In a kind, respectful and constructive way, we’d like to talk to you about the pain your words about being LGBT have personally caused me and other LGBT youth," Bernstein wrote. "Your statement that being LGBT is ‘destructive to our civilization,’ when millions of LGBT people like me try our very best every day to make our world a better place, was like a knife in the heart.”
Despite Bernstein’s heartfelt plea, Cameron declined

AUSTIN, TX — The Texas State Board of Education (SBOE) is meeting in Austin Thursday to review and discuss potential changes to science curriculum.

On Thursday, the board will open the floor to public testimony. A heated debate is expected.

Among some of the potential changes, the board is specifically reviewing biology lessons. The point of conflict remains tied to theories of evolution versus creationism.


During the first GOP presidential primary debate in South Carolina, Governor Tim Pawlenty is asked about his support for the teaching of creationism in public schools and whether he personally believes in the theory. Pawlenty said that he supported local school boards making those decisions and then tried to change the subject before he answered whether he personally supported it.

After Pawlenty attempted to pretend that he in any way shape or form supports union membership, Williams brought him back around the the initial question he asked and Pawlenty punted again and just said it should be left up to the parents and local governments.

Here’s more on that topic from the Minnesota Independent — Out of the closet: Pawlenty endorses teaching creationism in schools.


Unedited clip from Mike Huckabee’s speech at the Rediscover God in America conference before his ‘Americans should be forced at gunpoint to listen to David Barton’ was edited out.

David Barton, of course, is a well-known Christo-fasicst revisionist and historical liar. He is to history what creationist Kent Hovind is to science.
