Texas TV host to candidate: ‘Are you Christian enough to represent this district?’
Kevin Ellis is up for a post on the state board of education, but was asked if he’s “Christian enough” for the job.
During a Sunday face-off between Ellis and far-right opponent Mary Lou Bruner on WFAA’s Inside Texas Politics, both candidates made their case to voters for the May 24th runoff for the GOP nomination.
Ellis argued that schools needed to be properly funded, but that the district had a responsibility to see that money was spent wisely.
Bruner, who has warned that pre-K programs indoctrinate children into the “homosexual agenda,” called for slashing “special programs” and early childhood education…
Ms. Bruner has said that she wants creationism taught in science class,” Inside Texas Politics host Bud Kennedy noted. “And that her views represent those of the district. Are you Christian enough to represent this district?”
