Reverend Falwell & Company's Scary Thoughts on Monkey Trial Verdict


Commenting on the verdict in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District, the Reverend Jerry Falwell told the Lynchburg News Advance:

I am convinced that Judge Jones is out of step with the trends in this country. Religious freedom is back in. The country is moving away from extremist judges.

Even more scary were the comments of Falwell's legal eagle, Mat Staver, who according to the News Advance

said he is confident that Jones' ruling will be reversed, particularly if nominee Samuel Alito is confirmed for a seat on the nation's high court.

"With Justice (Sandra Day) O'Connor stepping down, the court will be inclined to be more favorable to intelligent design," Staver said. "I predict within the next decade that alternatives to evolution will be taught in the nation's classrooms."
