Aaron Miller, Minnesota's GOP candidate for congress is running for his daughters. One of which cries at scientific theories. No really! He's the one who told this story. Which is actually a rather funny one if you ask me.
According to his story one afternoon when his daughter returned home from school she was in tears. She explain to her parents that the reason was because she had just learned of evolution that day in class. He reported that the teacher too felt the same as his daughter. However, she could not act on her emotions due to the fact that it was a required standard for the school. He followed this story with "We should decide what is taught in our schools, not Washington, D.C.."
I have a lot of questions for Aaron. But the biggest one that I can not ignore is why the fuck did being taught something new cause your daughter to cry!? Does she have Sophophobia -fear of learning? Is she just a lazy student who really doesn't want to learn a new subject? Does she cry when people disagree with her? Or are you just lying to gain votes? I suspect the last option. I have never heard of someone being in tears because they where taught something new. They'd have to be immensely dense; or just stupid.
It's really kind of scary that just because his daughter doesn't like evolution Aaron is trying to get the teaching of it removed. That's how much power this kid has on her dad. This girl is over-dramatic and gets evolution removed? Typical republican style. No matter how hard people like this try to fight it facts are always going to be facts. Religion will always be separate from schools or else court cases will erupt. You can bitch and moan about Cosmos, biology books, and scientist all day. It doesn't change the fact that you're wrong.
