Bryan's One Fault According to Party

William Jennings Bryan embodied the principles of the progressive movement in the early 20th century. If you want a list of them, you can see them at Political Wire.

However, Bryan was on the wrong side on one issue, according to modern Democrats: science. Bryan was an ardent opponent of Darwinian theory in public schools. His theological philosophy was not as liberal as his economic one. Not only was he against evolution being taught, he was a full fledged supporter of creationism in the classroom.

Well, if you are a strong enough believer, who can blame the guy?
