It hasnt happened yet.
Soin my humble opinion, here is the way the interview should goand never does.
EVANGELICAL: Evolution is just a theory. Creationism is an alternate theory, once that should also be taught in our public schools.We also think that that public school children should be exposed to the teachings of the Bible

INTERVIEWER: The thousands of churches in this country. Have they all shut down? Has someone abolished Sunday School? Has a law been passed prohibiting parents from reading the Bible to their children at home?
