Creationists Win Another One in Louisiana
Louisiana Governor (and part time exorcist) Bobby Jindal’s stealth creationist bill is starting to bear rancid fruit, as the state’s top school board approves new rules intended to make it difficult for residents to challenge the teaching of creationism in science classes.
Pseudo-science promoted by ignorant religious fanatics takes another big step forward in Louisiana.
Gene Mills, president of the Louisiana Family Forum Action, praised the rules and said Bayard’s plan was better than the department’s recommendation.
“Arguably this is the closest thing that would mimic due process,” Mills said in a telephone interview after the meeting. “That seems equitable to me.”
The Louisiana Family Forum, a key backer of the law, says it promotes traditional values.
