COPE: Teaching Science Violates Rights of Christians; Courts Must Block Science Curriculum
Last week, we reported that an organization called Citizens for Objective Public Education filed a lawsuit contesting science standards in Kansas schools, arguing that lessons on evolution represent an unconstitutional establishment of religion.
John Calvert of the Intelligent Design Network, an attorney involved in the lawsuit, told conservative talk radio host Janet Mefferd today that lessons on evolution are “religious education” in violation of the rights of parents, children and taxpayers. Mefferd replied that it is “crazy” to think that public schools could teach evolution to Christian students.
So Christians are now actually using the argument that they have the right to keep their children ignorant and detached from reality?
Time to call CPS.
