Lady McCain, Creationism, and Abstinence-only Education

Created by: Leslie

In an interview with Katie Couric, Cindy McCain dances around many issues like abortion rights, the Palin Pick for VP, as well as creationism. As she defends her opinion that creationism should be taught in schools, she says, "I think the more children have a frame of reference and an opportunity to read and to know, they make better decisions and judgments when they're adults. So I think...I don't have any problem with education of any kind."

If you watch the clip, you will see Lady McCain speak as if she and her husband share a brain on the issues. So what I want to know is this: If she doesn't have a problem with "education of any kind," then why does her Bush-loving husband and his hyper-religious-extremist VP pick continually force abstinence-only education on the public school students of the United States of America? She said it herself, "The more children have...any opportunity to read and to know, they make better decisions...when they're adults." Creationism aside, Lady McCain, I couldn't agree with you more!
