Suck-ups tell Christians it's not OK to lie to children in science classrooms but it's perfectly OK to abuse children in a church or religious school.
At Florida bill may rekindle debate over evolution I wrote the following comments:
Mashiach wrote "Teaching intelligent design (creationism by another name) is fine. Just teach it in church, synagogue, or the mosque." I wonder why you think child abuse is fine. Teaching magical creationism is dishonest and it's the worst possible kind of child abuse. Lying to children should never be tolerated.
Hurd is part of the problem. He has invoked the Clergy Letter Project. He calls their pollution of evolutionary biology with god's magic wand a good thing. Suck-ups like Hurd are one reason why religious insanity is out of control. (I also wrote about Hurd here.)
Cowardly Christians, also known as science deniers, are terrified of evolutionary biology because this branch of science makes their dead Jeebus cry. I wrote about Florida's Christian war against science education here: http://darwinkilledgod.blogspot.com/2011/03/christian-war-against-science-education.html
"Florida bill may rekindle debate over evolution" There is no debate about the basic facts of evolution. This article should have been called "Florida bill rekindles the Christian war against science education".
