One of the pastors, Steve Riggle, said he didn't believe Parker was genuinely concerned about the religious freedom issues surrounding the subpoenas.

The Big Bang theory and evolution do not eliminate the existence of God, who remains the one who set all of creation into motion, Pope Francis told his own science academy.

"He created living beings and he let them develop according to the internal laws that he gave each one, so that they would develop and reach their full potential."
