Video: Bobby Jindal Supports Teaching ‘Intelligent Design’

• Views: 1,046

He tries to dance around the issue to avoid offending either side, but it’s clear that Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal favors the teaching of “intelligent design” in science classrooms. Thanks to Allahpundit for letting me steal his video clip; his comment is also on the mark:

The politics of this issue are convoluted — majorities want both evolution and creationism taught, but roughly twice as many voters are less likely to vote for creationist politicians than more likely — so Jindal’s non-answer is the safe way to play it. But can we please, at least, lay off the federalist rhetoric he uses here until it’s settled whether ID violates the Establishment Clause or not? It’s a fine conservative idea that local school boards should have more power than state boards or the DOE, but constitutional violations are constitutional violations all the way down the chain, federalism or no. Jindal surely knows that too, which I guess makes that his second dodge.
