How refreshing!

Q: York County was recently in the news for a lawsuit involving the teaching of intelligent design. Whatís your attitude regarding the teaching of evolution in public schools?

A: ďIím a Christian, and I believe in parents being able to provide children with religious instruction without interference from the state.

But I also believe our schools are there to teach worldly knowledge and science. I believe in evolution, and I believe thereís a difference between science and faith. That doesnít make faith any less important than science. It just means theyíre two different things. And I think itís a mistake to try to cloud the teaching of science with theories that frankly donít hold up to scientific inquiry.ď
