Rep. Broun Spox: Comments Decrying Science As Satanic Lie Were ‘Off Record’


Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) told a church group in Georgia last month that embryology, evolution, and the Big Bang theory were "lies straight from the pit of Hell.” The speech was captured on video and provided to TPM at the time by Democratic tracker The Bridge Project. 
Now a spokeswoman for Broun, Meredith Griffanti tells CNN Broun will not comment on his remarks. But she added that they weren't meant for public consumption and that Broun was “speaking off the record to a large church group about his personal beliefs regarding religious issues.” The church group posted a publicly available video of his full speech on YouTube after the event.
