Louisiana is about to spend almost twelve million dollars to fund the teaching of creationism, charges Zack Kopplin, famous for organizing the effort to repeal the so-called Louisiana Science Education Act.
...Writing earlier in the New Orleans Times-Picayune (July 18, 2012) about Kopplin's research on the private schools expected to receive new students through the voucher program, columnist James Gill commented, "It is impossible to prepare fully for such a massive reform as going voucher, and some undeserving private schools are bound to receive an OK from harried state officials.
But a religious takeover on this scale cannot be accidental.
Of the schools on Zack Kopplin's list, one believes that scientists are 'sinful men,' and declares its view 'on the age of the earth and other issues is that any theory that goes against God's word is in error.'
Another avers that evolution is 'extremely damaging to children individually and to society as a whole.'
A third tells students to write an essay explaining how 'the complexity of a cell shows it must be purposefully designed.'
And so it goes."
