Dominionist Schoolboard Spanked in Court Over Creationism
Federal District Judge John Jones has ruled against the imposition of Intelligent Design in the curriculum by the Dover, Pennsylvania School Board. This same board was recalled in the recent November election. From the text of the decision:
. . . This case came to us as the result of the activism of an ill-informed faction on a school board, aided by a national public interest law firm eager to find a constitutional test case on ID, who in combination drove the Board to adopt an imprudent and ultimately unconstitutional policy. The breathtaking inanity of the Board's decision is evident when considered against the factual backdrop which has now been fully revealed through this trial. The students, parents, and teachers of the Dover Area School District deserved better than to be dragged into this legal maelstrom, with its resulting utter waste of monetary and personal resources.
Don't expect the battle of evolution to end there. Dominionist congregations are fielding an army of candidates for local school boards, city council, county supervisor, etc. The dogma of Creationism is ever morphing — ever evolving in an attempt to make it appear more palatable to the public
The intent is replacing the US Constitution with Biblical law. I kid you not. "The only true order is founded on Biblical Law. All law is religious in nature, and every non-Biblical law-order represents an anti-Christian religion."
