Our orange-faced President-elect Donald Trump is slowly filling up his cabinet with the vilest RWNJs he can find. He tried to get Ben Carson to do it, but he refused. Carson doesn’t believe in gravity, in a young-Earth creationist, AND he believes that the pyramids in Egypt were built to store grain.
Now, Trump is possibly vetting another Republican dumbass for this position. He’s even worse… a televangelist. As an atheist, I worry about Trump hiring so many fundies. Falwell Jr is also a creationist, so he may try and shove those ideas into our schools.
Falwell Jr wouldn’t specifically say whether or not he talked to Trump about that particular position, but he did meet the President-elect at Trump Tower.
Creationism has NO place in our schools. The Earth is not 6,000 years old. The GOP wants to shove their religion on anyone they possibly can. We need to fight these bigoted f***ers every step of the way.
As if this wasn’t bad enough, he spoke at the Republican National Convention. He called Trump a “great visionary of our time.” We need to fight to keep up the wall separating church and state.
