Teaching Creationism in Louisiana
You'd think that after the scathing "Dover vs. Kitzmiller" court decision, which found that teaching intelligent design/creationism in public schools is clearly unconstitutional, school boards would be reluctant to raise the issue and drag their districts through long, expensive, and losing court battles. But no, they never learn. The Livingston County, LA school board is considering adding creationism to the science curriculum. Here's a quote from one board member: "Why can't we get someone with religious beliefs to teach creationism?" Maybe somebody will talk some sense into these idiots before they end up costing the local citizens a lot of money and much embarrassment.
