Sign your name to call on Speaker John Boehner to remove Rep. Paul Brown from the House Science, Space and Technology Committee.
Meet Paul Brown, a man helping set the nation's science policies:
In videotaped remarks made Sept. 27 before a church group, Broun called what he had been taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang theory "all lies straight from the pit of Hell," adding that the lies were intended to "keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior." (source)
"You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I've found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth. I don't believe that the earth's but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them." (source)
You can watch the video yourself, just below.
It is outrageous that someone with Rep. Broun's views and jaw-dropping ignorance is on a committee devoted to overseeing science policy. This is something that John Boehner can and must change right now.
Tell Speaker Boehner to immediately remove Rep. Broun from the House Science, Space and Technology Committee.
