Catholic and Creationist?
Apparently, Christine O’Donnell – the tea party candidate who won in the Delaware primary – is Catholic. Apparently, she also believes in creationism and is on record saying: “creationism, in essence, is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24-hour periods. And there is just as much, if not more, evidence supporting that”. Today, this fringe position is almost exclusively associated with American evangelicals. This is yet another small piece of evidence that on Catholic right, Catholic culture and Catholic sensibility are being overwhelmed by the Americanist-evangelical mindset.
