The Bridge Project provided this excerpt from remarks by Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., at the Liberty Baptist Church Sportsman's Banquet on Sept. 27 in Hartwell, Ga. The video was extracted from this full version, starting at about the 35-minute mark: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eU4B86AL5Go
U.S. Rep. Paul Broun's view that the theories of evolution and the big bang are "lies straight from the pit of Hell" is getting more exposure than he might have expected, thanks to a video that was made at a church-sponsored banquet in Georgia and distributed by a progressive political watchdog group.
The Georgia Republican is already well-known as an outspoken conservative Christian, due in part to his unsuccessful campaign to have 2010 declared "the Year of the Bible." But the latest comments have taken on an extra dab of controversy because Broun, a medical doctor, calls himself a scientist in the video and chairs the House Science Committee's panel on investigations and oversight.
(FYI - The Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight has general and special investigative authority on all matters within the jurisdiction of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.) LINK
