Kansas Devolves, Again

The last time Kansas updated its science curriculum standards, we all know what happened. Religious Right-oriented members of the Kansas Board of Education tried to eliminate virtually every reference to evolutionary biology from the K-12 curriculum.

National and international outrage brought shame on the whole state. In the next election, the far-right members were swept out of office and replaced by moderates eager to restore science to science classrooms.

Roy Moore Just Keeps Going and Going and Going....

The tenacious former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Roy Moore is continuing his quixotic quest against church-state separation. Rejected by every court that heard his Ten Commandments display case and kicked off the bench for spurning a federal court order, Moore is looking to the U.S. Supreme Court for his final reprieve.

Jonesing For Election Wins: The Truth Comes Out

U.S. Rep. Walter B. Jones (R-N.C.) says his proposed legislation to permit religious leaders to endorse candidates for public office is necessary to restore free speech in America's pulpits. He even calls his bill the "Houses of Worship Free Speech Restoration Act" (H.R. 235).

But now the truth has come out. As it turns out, the bill really isn't intended to promote free speech at all. Instead, Jones sees it as a vehicle to elect more conservatives to public office.
