Fastlane

To be more accurate, two of the ID proponents on the Kansas School Board were re-elected, and two were voted out. This was just enough to turn the tide for the reality based community, but 2008 is going to very....intersting.

I expect several stealth ID candidates.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. David Vitter, R-La., earmarked $100,000 in a
spending bill for a Louisiana Christian group that has challenged the
teaching of Darwinian evolution in the public school system and to
which he has political ties.

The money is included in the labor, health and education financing
bill for fiscal 2008 and specifies payment to the Louisiana Family
Forum "to develop a plan to promote better science education."

The earmark appears to be the latest salvo in a decades-long battle
over science education in Louisiana, in which some Christian groups
have opposed the teaching of evolution and, more recently, have pushed
to have it prominently labeled as a theory with other alternatives
presented. Educators and others have decried the movement as a
backdoor effort to inject religious teachings into the classroom.

The nonprofit Louisiana Family Forum, launched in Baton Rouge in 1999
by former state Rep. Tony Perkins, has in recent years taken the lead
in promoting "origins science," which includes the possibility of
divine intervention in the creation of the universe.

The group's stated mission is to "persuasively present biblical
principles in the centers of influence on issues affecting the family
through research, communication and networking." Until recently, its
Web site contained a "battle plan to combat evolution," which called
the theory a "dangerous" concept that "has no place in the classroom."
The document was removed after a reporter's inquiry.
