My biggest objection to Bill Foster’s candidacy is the possibility of him injecting his religious beliefs into his governing of the city. I’ve been highly critical of the now infamous letter Foster wrote in which he blames Darwin and Evolution for the rise of Hitler and the events at Columbine. I’ve also been critical of Foster’s stance on gay rights, specifically his opposition to gay marriage. All of that said, Foster’s worldview is beginning to evolve.
The first indication of Foster’s evolution was this interview on Bay News 9 in which he flat out says he does not want creationism taught in public schools:
Then, at last week’s Tiger Bay mayoral forum, Foster took another step in the right direction by reaffirming his commitment to upholding the constitutional separation of church and state.
