The Indiana Senate apparently wants to lose a really big lawsuit. The Committee on Education and Career Development passed Senate Bill 89 last week by an 8-2 vote, sending it to the floor for a full vote. Here’s what that bill would do:
The governing body of a school corporation may require the teaching of various theories concerning the origin of life, including creation science, within the school corporation.
The Center for Inquiry – Indiana sent a letter and testified against the bill and explained to them that the Supreme Court’s 1987 ruling in Edwards v Aguillard clearly makes that law unconstitutional. They didn’t seem to care.
