Arizona’s new education chief is a young earth creationist
She’s the devout Christian halfwit who became a national laughing stock when she suggested that America’s ‘moral decay’ could be halted if mandatory church attendance was introduced to a nation that had strayed from the path of biblical righteousness.
Lamenting the passing of the good old days of her youth in the 1950s , Allen said:
People prayed, people went to church. I remember on Sundays the stores were closed … biggest thing is religion was kicked out of our public places, out of our schools.
Well, Allen – who believes the earth is a mere 6,000 years old – is now in a position to remedy that. According to this report, she has just been made the new chairwoman of the state Senate committee that oversees the state’s education.
Yesterday, Senate President Andy Biggs named Allen to lead a committee that acts as a gatekeeper for education-related legislation, such as Common Core and spending.
She understands what Arizona students and parents need in our education system. She is a very experienced legislator and I know she will do a wonderful job.
