Texas Education Board Chair Wants Schools to Teach “Another Side” to Evolution
The woman Governor Rick Perry personally chose to chair the Texas State Board of Education, Barbara Cargill, is a creationist.
Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. This is what Republicans will do every time they get the chance.
The Texas Freedom Network is keeping an eye on these religious fanatics, and they’ve posted a video of Cargill speaking at a Senate Education Committee hearing in Austin, complaining that the curriculum used by Texas school districts doesn’t “teach the controversy” about the theory of evolution.
There is no controversy about the theory of evolution, of course. That’s how these throwbacks continually try to hoodwink people, by sounding as if they’re concerned about giving kids a good education — when in reality, they’re trying to instill mindless reactionary ignorance in children, to match their own benighted brains.
