Taken together, these two comments represent precisely why Christians should not hold political power.

Let's unpack the logic behind this statement.

1) Some legistators and school board members (presumably Christian) have tried to ban the teaching of evolution in schools.

2) #1 is bad.

3) Mike thinks the Bible is inspired, even though there's no external evidence of inspiration.

4) #3 is bad.

5) Therefore, Christians should not hold political power.

I'll leave it to you to find the flaw in this chain of logic.
