So how then are we still debating these ideas in 2014 and why are our schools finding ways to sneak these theologies into the classroom?

Well, the religious right and the Republican Party are very creative, and today in my latest article for AlterNet, I look at how this is happening and peer into the 5 worst offenders in the US.
