I am currently working my way through the book The Evolution Controversy in America, written by historian George Webb and published in 1994. I got a kick out of the following quote. It will help to know that the Reverend Ben M. Bogard was the pastor of a church in Little Rock, Arkansas in the 1920′s. He was not too fond of evolution.
To assist in the initiative drive, Bogard organized the American Antievolution Association. This group solicited membership from all individuals except, “Negroes and persons of African descent, Atheists, Infidels, Agnostics, such persons as hold the theory of Evolution, habitual drunkards, gamblers, profane swearers, despoilers of the domestic life of others, desecrators of the Lord’s Day and those who would depreciate feminine virtue by vulgarly discussing sex relationship.” (p. 102)
I’m thinking I wouldn’t be welcome there.
