Christie to reporters: Whether I believe in evolution is ‘none of your business’

New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie, who many Republicans hope will run for president, won’t be backed into a corner.

Christie was asked at a Thursday press conference whether he believes in evolution. In his famously brash manner, Christie responded, “that’s none of your business.”

Last week, Christie told attendees of a local town hall that he believes decisions on teaching creationism should be left to local school districts, NJ.com reports.

At the Thursday press conference Christie repeated that position, saying, “evolution is required teaching.” He added, “if there’s a certain school district that also wants to teach creationism, that’s not something we should decide in Trenton.”
