A Missouri lawmaker has proposed what ranks among the most anti-evolution legislation in recent years, which would require schools to notify parents if “the theory of evolution by natural selection” was being taught at their child’s school and give them the opportunity to opt out of the class.
State Rep. Rick Brattin ®, who sponsored the bill, told a local TV station last week that teaching only evolution in school was “indoctrination.”
There are no parental-notification laws on science classes anywhere in the United States. Brattin’s bill, which may actually be the first of its kind, received its first public hearing on Thursday.
The Missouri Republican added that modern biology is based “on as much faith and, you know, just as much pulled out of the air as, say, any religion.”
I have to admit being taken aback by what seems an implication that ANY religion is just pulled out of the air, but I'm sure he meant any religion except True Christianity ™. We should support this man with our letters, emails, phone calls, and votes. Praise God for lawmakers that are on our side!
