Stevan Edward “Steve” Pearce is the U.S. Representative for New Mexico's 2nd congressional district and your typical wingnut moron. He has promoted himself as a true champion of Christian values, with the usual distortions and lies associated with people who promote themselves that way, for instance claiming that atheists are campaigning to outlaw prayer (a standard Liar for Jesus utterly dishonest spin on the Establishment Clause).
What kind of politician he is can nevertheless probably best be illustrated by his birther sympathies, and at a 2010 event in Los Lunas he refused to say whether he believes Barack Obama is a natural-born U.S. citizen – in response to no one but Karl Rove’s rejection of that idiocy. He has also dismissed environmentalism as the domain of crazies and kooks. And to top if off, Pearce is a creationist, claiming that “[p]eople are declaring that we descended from apes. Now, I know that’s not true.”
Diagnosis: Don’t vote for this guy, New Mexico. Seriously.
