(Newser) – A candidate for Alabama governor is fighting back against an ad that accuses him of supporting evolution and believing the Bible is "only partially true." Bradley Byrne says the ad is filled with "despicable lies:" "As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God," Byrne said. "As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books."

Byrne also added that he believes "every single word" of the Bible is true, CBS News reports. The attack ad was made by a group called the True Republican PAC. The former Democrat, now a GOP primary candidate, faces a number of opponents, including the judge who released the now-infamous "we speak English" ad.
