Here’s a bright spot in an otherwise awful Election Day: Montana Governor Steve Bullock was re-elected, defeating Republican Creationist Greg Gianforte.
Gianforte, you might recall, is a Christian whose family foundation has donated money to the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum, a local Creation museum. A couple of years ago, students at Montana Tech even protested the fact he was delivering the engineering school’s commencement address because he didn’t accept science. He’s the type of candidate who wanted schools to “teach the controversy” in science class even where no controversy exists (at least among people who actually know what they’re talking about).
Science is safe in the state’s schools. I mean, we’re all going to be screwed over when Republicans in Washington ignore climate change to the point where we all burn, but until then, nice work, Montana!
