Bradley Byrne is running for the Republican nomination for governor in Alabama but is not conservative enough for those responsible for the above attack ad. Byrne is being attacked and even mocked for supporting teaching evolution in the schools and for saying “there are parts of the Bible that are meant to be literally true and parts that are not.”
Byrne is being attacked for views which would be rather sane coming from a Republican. Rather than defending such views Byrne insists he is as big a kook as those attacking him:
As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God. As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school textbooks. Those who attack me have distorted, twisted and misrepresented my comments and are spewing utter lies to the people of this state.
