The Most Dangerous Elected Representative in the United States

Is Minnesota State Representative Mike Beard the most dangerous elected politician in America?

Representative Beard supports coal mining in Minnesota and isn't worried about depleting natural resources. Not at all. Why? Here's what Representative Beard told MinnPost:  "God is not capricious. He's given us a creation that is dynamically stable. We are not going to run out of anything."

Beard isn't worried about nuclear war either. He said, "How did Hiroshima and Nagasaki work out? We destroyed that, but here we are, 60 years later and they are tremendously effective and livable cities. Yes, it was pretty horrible.  But, can we recover? Of course we can."

Scary. Dangerous. Disturbing. It's one thing to hold deep and sincere religious beliefs. It's another thing entirely when these beliefs become a substitute for science and critical thinking by elected representatives.
