Religion is taught at home, not in public schools unless the schools teach ALL religions ALL of them, all their origins and history and I doubt Christians want that.

Here in TN, they have taken steps though new legislation to allow creationism back into the classroom. This law turns the clock back nearly 100 years here in the seemingly unprogressive South and is simply embarrassing. There is no argument against the Theory of Evolution other than that of religious doctrine. The Monkey Law only opens the door for fanatic Christianity to creep its way back into our classrooms. You can see my visual response as a Tennessean to this absurd law on my artistís blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/04/pu... with some evolutionary art and a little bit of simple logic.

scary to see the push for ignorance by leaders elected to educate and bring our youth to innovation and progress not possible with backwards ideologies.

It's hard to believe that most of the world has outgrown the ignorance of evolution denial, including the Catholic Church and many protestant faiths, but a bunch of fundamentalists insist of continuing this 150 year old losing battle. What a joke...
