This particular instance is completely insane. They're not even bothering with the Intelligent Design smokescreen. They're flat-out pushing Creationism.
So many of these Tea Party Republicans seem more detached from reality than the usual bunch of Republicans. I just hope we get a backlash from the middle, in another two years, once the flip-flop voters see what sort of monsters they've let loose.
Fellow member, Scott Anderson, who was elected with Kohls when the district was struggling financially, supports his colleague’s idea.
“Creationism is a significant part of the history of this country,” Kohls said. “It is an absolutely valid theory and to omit it means we are omitting part of the history of this country.”
So many things wrong with that statement.
Also, I'm sure the people of this financially-struggling district will appreciate the cost of the court battle.
I'd comment on some of the more outrageous bits from further down the page as well, but it's the usual stuff we've come to expect from anti-science idiots.
they absolutly can NOT do that on constitutional grounds.

its the same thing that will happen to any "religious" (restricted, ignorent and sencored) school system.

all else is irrelevant.
and on that kind of a world stage, these kids will be intellectually crippled for life.
