    Most, if not all liberals, leftists, democrats wouldn't or couldn't belong to a party that didn't believe in science. So is that your answer, too? Really? lol

    "Hate" him? There are many options available to you: dislike, disagree, opposed to, cannot support and so forth. You get the picture, but hate? It is a strong word and I would argue that it is likely inappropriate in the context in which you used it.

    I absolutely don't believe in creation. I don't hate anyone who does. I certainly don't hate Walker and I wouldn't hate him if he professed his belief in creation. As I said earlier I find it telling that he skirted the question.

    I also said that I wouldn't vote for him for a host of reasons. My mind was made up regarding Walker long ago. Because people disagree with him on many issues doesn't mean they hate him. Frankly, he hasn't done much of anything.

    Bingo, babycakes! That is precisely why others are not asked the question. The Brits did their homework, Walker didn't. He chumped himself.

    While I can't stand Hillary I'd say I'm fairly comfortable believing that she believes in evolution, as do all the presumptive Democratic candidates that I am aware of. I like Warren, Webb, Sanders and Gary Johnson. Most people would likely agree that these people would respond by saying evolution. No surprise there.

    Why? Well one of the reasons is that the Democratic Party, Libertarian Party, the Green Party and Independent Bernie Sanders are not struggling under the stranglehold of right wing religionism. The GOP is. That's no secret. It's difficult to separate the GOP from Tea Party and/or the Religious Right. The connection defines the GOP , hence the quite predictable question in London.

    Are you so retarded that you believe the guy you voted for CANT believe in both his oft stated Christian faith AND science? IS that only a position you reserve for democrats?

    You make a cute couple.

    So tell me...do you think Obamas direct response with regard to the Biblical creation of the universe was a lie or was it unscientific?

    I have no idea what Obama said regarding the question or the context in which it was asked. I never voted for Obama.

    Let me help you with that...
    "You know, what I've said to them is that I believe that God created the universe and that the six days in the Bible may not be six days as we understand it, it may not be 24-hour days, and that's what I believe. I know there's always a debate between those who read the Bible literally and those who don't, and that I think it's a legitimate debate within the Christian community of which I'm a part. My belief is that the story that the Bible tells about God creating this magnificent Earth on which we live -- that is essentially true, that is fundamentally true. Now, whether it happened exactly as we might understand it reading the text of the Bible. That, I don't presume to know."

    Of course...CNN could be lying.

    Your opinion and reality seem to differ quite a bit.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Excellent! So you agree then that it was not at all off base to put a similar question to Scott Walker in the UK?
