In the debate between Republican contenders a week ago, only three raised their hands to indicate that they believed in evolution: Senator Sam Brownback, Governor Mike Huckabee, and Representative Tom Tancredo. Our question is, what about the rest of them? Do they all accept this scientific folderol over the literal word of the Bible?

You can’t help but wonder about the family values of men like ‘Rudy Guiliani and Newt Gingrich, both of whom have been married three times and John McCain, who has chalked up two marriages. Gingrich was cheating on his second wife even as he lead the charge in the effort to impeach Bill Clinton over his dalliance with bimbo Monica Lewinski.

Mike Huckabee may not be perfect, but at least he believes in the Second Commandment: “do unto others,” as he said in an interview with Time magazine writer Joe Klein (p. 23, March 26, 2007). Wait a minute! Do unto others? Isn’t that the Golden Rule? The Second Commandment warns, "You shall not make for yourself a graven image.” The guy doesn’t believe in science, and he doesn’t know the Bible.

Democratic candidate Carl Perrin also believes in the Second Commandment. He may not be perfect, but he has never made a graven image for himself.
