What do we expect from a state with a backwards education system? They reap what they sow…idiots.
“On Wednesday, with just two weeks left in the legislative session, the Louisiana House of Representatives approved SB 733, a bill intended to facilitate the teaching of creationism in public schools.
The Rev. Barry W. Lynn promptly responded, calling the proposed law an “embarrassment” and guaranteeing legal action if the measure is used “to promote religion in Louisiana public schools.”
Americans United for Separation of Church and State, as well as the American Civil Liberties Union, the National Center for Science Education, the National Academy of Sciences, the American Institute of Biological Sciences, the National Association of Biology Teachers and the new grassroots Louisiana Coalition for Science, decry the legislation as a poorly disguised attempt to bring creationism and its latest variant “intelligent design”(ID), into the classroom under the guise of academic freedom.
The legislature shouldn’t be allowing creationists to undermine Louisiana public schools. The House of Representatives just gave the Religious Right a green light to use other people’s children for their own agenda.” -Barbara Forrest
