Christine O’Donnell is Way Out of Touch with Reality

Christine_O'Donnell“Evolution is a myth… Why aren’t monkeys still evolving into humans?”

Christine O’Donnell gets an Out of Touch with Reality post for her remarkable statements about aids, evolution, witchcraft, cross-breeding, masturbation.. some of which is listed here. She is listed her because she persuaded enough voters with her alternative reality to win a primary.  Which is a little disturbing. O’Donnell graduated from Moorestown High School in 1987. She attended Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) beginning in 1987, initially majoring in theater, but later changing to English literature with a concentration in communications. O’Donnell later told The New York Times she had had three senior years of college.

 

“American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains.”

“We took the Bible and prayer out of public schools. Now we’re having weekly shootings. We had the 60s sexual revolution, and now people are dying of AIDS.” She went on t o claim that distributing condoms to high school students will not stop aids it will help spread aids.

As a Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell demonstrated a profound ignorance about creationism, Intelligent Design, the First Amendment to the US constitution, and rulings of the US Supreme Court, in a debate held at Widener Law School in October 2010 with Chris Coon. 

In the debate O’Donnell was arguing that creationism, or what some confused Christians call “Intelligent Design,” should be taught in public schools.  When the issue of whether creationism, or “Intelligent Design,” should be taught in public schools, O’Donnell questioned Coon’s assertion that the First Amendment calls for the separation of church and state. And so begins the humiliation of Christine O’Donnell:

Christine O’Donnell: “Where in the Constitution is separation of church and state? Let me just clarify: You’re telling me that the separation of church and state is found in the First Amendment?”

Chris Coons: “Government shall make no establishment of religion.”

Christine O’Donnell: “That’s in the First Amendment?”

The audience burst into laughter at O’Donnell’s remarks. However, she seemed to believe the audience was laughing with her.
