Backwardness and anti-education policies do not surprise me in sharia states; it comes with the territory. Interesting how the left tore any Christian leader or “Creationist” apart for Darwin denial. Spencer Tracy and Fredric March were practically deified for their performances in Stanley Kramer’s “Inherit the Wind.”
The Scopes trial was a cause celebre for the left. The Christian philistines were beyond their contempt — depicted as violent rubes.
