Governor Perry, Stop It…

Governor Perry has co-sponsored a bill to allow religion to be brought up in schools. Now, I have no problem, however I do find this odd.

The bill is designed to allow students to discuss religion with classmates as they would any secular issue in school. However, the portion right after that statement is problematic.

“”Students are discouraged from any conversations about religion,” said Poirier, who also is a co-sponsor of the bill. “Perhaps in science class, when evolution is discussed, a student would be able to bring up creationism.””

Creationism is NOT science. It has no right to be in a science class and to continue to allow so is detrimental to the students minds. You can discuss religion already in schools, you just can’t say Jesus, or Mohammad, or any religion is the right one. This isn’t needed.

Finally, if you haven’t read it, the new Dawkins book is wonderful. I love my new book. Perhaps we should give Ms. Poirier one. Perhaps she would then see that creationism is not a viable realm to be discussed in science class.
