Ouch. Rough place in which to be an atheist. I don't suppose Nashville is much more sane than the rest of Tennessee, huh? Tennessee is one of the first states that comes to mind, for me, when I think of states in which they're still trying to shove Creationism into the public schools.
Of course, Pennsylvania was not one of the states that ever would have come to mind, and it was the site of the big case that we all look back to as one of our greatest recent victories.
