Michael Peroutka: 'The Promotion Of Evolution Is An Act Of Disloyalty To America'
Once in a while, in the course of other research, we’ll stumble across something that is a little bit old but is still too good not to post. So it is with this 2011 lecture by Michael Peroutka, founder of the Institute on the Constitution, in which he argues that not only is the theory of evolution “anti-American” but that “the promotion of evolution is an act of disloyalty to America.”
Peroutka’s logic seems to depend on the Declaration of Independence’s statement that “all men are created equal,” which he generously “paraphrases” as, “There exists a creator God. He is the God of the Bible. He is not Allah, nor any of the Hindu deities, nor is he the God that is in the wind or in the trees or some other impersonal force. He created us. We did not evolve from apes or slimy, swampy things.”
“What I am saying is that the promotion of evolution is an act of disloyalty to America,” he explains. “What I’m saying is that there is no way you could promote or believe in evolution and sing ‘God Bless America’ during the 7th inning stretch.”
“All men are created equal, they are not evolved equal, get it?” he adds. “So evolution is anti-American.”
The lecture is part of a series that you can pay money to subscribe to throughout the year. We should also mention that Peroutka is currently running for local office in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.
