VA Republican Senator Who Called Women a Child’s “Host” Now Pushing Denial of Evolution


    Yes, the same Virginia Republican Senator, Stephen Martin, who became a national laughing stock for his comments calling women “the child’s host (some refer to them as mothers),” and generally raging against pro-choice advocates (as “very sick people”), is back at it again on his Facebook page (note to Senator Martin: stay off of social media!!!). This time, he’s denying evolution, citing an article on an “intelligent design” site. According to this website’s about section, “intelligent design (ID) offers a promising scientific alternative to materialistic theories of biological and cosmological evolution – an alternative that is finding increasing theoretical and empirical support.” Of course, that is complete and utter bull****, but there are actually people who believe it (#educationsystemFAIL). Anyway, it seems somehow appropriate that the guy who views women as no more than a baby’s “host” would also deny one of the most important, crucial, and well-evidenced scientific theories in human history. Even more amazing is that this guy is a State Senator, although it’s certainly not surprising that he’s a member of the Republican Party (Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and many others thrashing around in their graves just thinking about what’s become of their once-fine party…).
