I agree with the sentiment, but...
Did Gonzales actually ever express support for YEC views ? My impression was that he was into some kind of cosmological fine tuning flavor of id. While that might not be defensible as science, it's a heck of a lot less batshit crazy than YEC. I'd have serious concern about a YEC actually being able to teach science, but I don't think holding some vague "god set it all up just right" view would be a problem.
