I guess Herbie need not ask the almost VP of the USA about creationism? Some were worried about some sort of pastor-by-association syndrome for the eventual winner, so it's unclear why Sarah's churches beliefs came in for so little scrutiny? If she is a pentecostal, as is the church she spent most of her adult life in, then she is a bible literalist. She believes the earth is 6000 years old, that humans encountered dinosaurs, and that Noah's Ark didn't have room for them I guess, hence their extinction. She certainly wants creationism taught in schoools as a serious alternative to evolution.

There is no doubt that the historical Jesus, the man who was executed by the Roman State in the first century CE, was a brown-skinned, Middle Eastern Jew.
I grew up in a Christian home, where a photo of Jesus hung on my bedroom wall. I still have it. It is schmaltzy and rather tacky in that 1970s kind of way, but as a little girl I loved it. In this picture, Jesus looks kind and gentle, he gazes down at me lovingly. He is also light-haired, blue-eyed, and very white.
The stories we tell define history. So who gets the mic in America?
- History is written by lions. But it's also recorded by lambs.
- In order to understand American history, we need to look at the events of the past as more prismatic than the narrative given to us in high school textbooks.
- Including different voices can paint a more full and vibrant portrait of America. Which is why more walks of American life can and should be storytellers.
