Does Mitt Romney believe in evolution?

May 8, 2007 11:20am

At the GOP debate last week, only three candidates raised their hands when asked if they did not believe in evolution — Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., and Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kansas.

Our friend David Brody at Christian Broadcasting News asked former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for a clarification, since Romney is trying to appeal to conservative Christian voters.

Writes Brody (LINK HERE): "The majority of Born Again Evangelicals take the Creationist viewpoint. Some Evangelicals already have concerns about Romney’s Mormon faith. He needs support from Evangelicals to win. That’s why this issue is an important one that needs to be cleared up. I don’t think this is an issue that Romney can avoid. I believe his views need to be clear."

And Brody doesn’t find the answer Romney’s campaign gave to be satisfactory. "Governor Romney believes both science and faith can help inform us about the origins of life in this world."

What do you think?
