Elbert Guillory (D-Opelousas) on Jindal's creationist bill and witchcraft

quote:

Sen. Elbert Guillory, D-Opelousas, said he had reservations with repealing the act after a spiritual healer correctly diagnosed a specific medical ailment he had. He said he thought repealing the act could "lock the door on being able to view ideas from many places, concepts from many cultures."

“Yet if I closed my mind when I saw this man—in the dust, throwing some bones on the ground, semi-clothed—if I had closed him off and just said, ‘That's not science. I'm not going to see this doctor,’ I would have shut off a very good experience for myself,” Guillory said.


Holy. shite.

I used to work with Elbert years ago. I really like the guy. I have no idea what he's talking about with that quote, though, other than it sounds like he had a spiritual experience of some sort. There's a history of spiritual medicine in Louisiana, though. Voodoo/hoodoo and traiteurs.

Yep.

Voodoo shouldn't be taught in medical school, just like creationism shouldn't be taught in high school science classrooms.
