Reinike Supports Teaching Creationism

In the second interesting moment in the City Council race since the nominations (the first being the revelations about Kenneth Jackson’s penchant for stabbing people) , Republican candidate Ann Reinike said at a Wednesday candidate forum that she supports teaching creationism in Charlottesville schools. Apparently by way of explanation, Reineke said that she does not believe that creationism is a religious topic. Bob Hodous, chairman of the Charlottesville Republicans, defended Reineke, saying that not everybody believes in evolution. It is noteworthy that city councilors have no role in the school system, other than selecting school board members. Liz Nelson had the story in yesterday’s Progress.
