In 2002, six parents in Cobb County, Georgia in the case Selman v. Cobb County School District sued to have the following sticker removed from public school textbooks: "This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered." Selman v. Cobb County School District, No. 1:02CV2325 (N.D. Ga. filed August 21, 2002). Defense attorney Gunn said, "The only thing the school board did is acknowledge there is a potential conflict [between evolution and creationism] and there is a potential infringement on people's beliefs if you present it in a dogmatic way. We're going to do it in a respectful way." Gerald R. Weber, legal director of the ACLU of Georgia, said "The progress of church-state cases has been that the [U.S.] Supreme Court sets a line, then government entities do what they can to skirt that line. […] Here the Supreme Court has said you can't teach creationism in the public schools. You can't have an equal-time provision for evolution and creationism. These disclaimers are a new effort to skirt the line." Jefferey Selman, who brought the lawsuit, claims "It singles out evolution from all the scientific theories out there. Why single out evolution? It has to be coming from a religious basis, and that violates the separation of church and state." The School Board said it adopted the sticker "to foster critical thinking among students, to allow academic freedom consistent with legal requirements, to promote tolerance and acceptance of diversity of opinion and to ensure a posture of neutrality toward religion."
On January 14, 2005, a federal judge in Atlanta ruled that the stickers should be removed as they violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. The school board subsequently decided to appeal the decision. In comments on December 15, 2005 in advance of releasing its decision, the appeal court panel appeared critical of the lower court ruling and a judge indicated that he did not understand the difference between evolution and abiogenesis.
On December 20, 2006, the Cobb County Board of Education abandoned all of its legal activities and will no longer mandate that biology texts contain a sticker stating "evolution is a theory, not a fact." Their decision was a result of compromise negotiated with a group of parents, represented by the ACLU, that were opposed to the sticker. The parents agreed, as their part of the compromise, to withdraw their legal actions against the board.
Their textbook sticker is as stupid as saying "This textbook contains material on gravity. Gravity is a theory, not a fact, regarding why people don't float up into outer space. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered."
Christians assholes are constantly at war against evolutionary biology because they know this branch of science makes their dead Jeebus cry. They know evolution threatens their cowardly belief in a magical heaven.
Should these uneducated morons be allowed to make decisions about science curriculums? I don't think so. It's not fair to students to have their education dumbed down because some Christian retards are afraid of reality.
Will Christian assholes ever stop wasting everyone else's money so they can force biology teachers to brainwash everyone's else children?
What's your problem Christians? Aren't you satisfied with destroying the minds of your own children? Are you so cowardly that you have to attack everyone else's education?
Christians, if you can't grow up, you're going to have to learn how to shut the fuck up, because you're being watched and you will never be allowed to get away with anything.
