Dear Log,

«But some said the public document, distributed Sept. 23, provides a window into the priorities of some [Charles County school] board members.

One entry calls for inviting Gideons International to distribute Bibles to students. Another reads: "Science: Do not use books biased towards evolution (10th grade biology)." It recommends that texts and videos espousing the theory of creationism be provided to students. The list includes recommendations that sex education classes teach abstinence only and "a pro-life approach throughout the school system." Another suggests deleting from reading lists any books that offer a "neutral or positive view of immorality or foul language."»

--Religion Colors Goals for Schools: Giving Out Bibles Among Suggestions

Yes yes, we need to give equal time to evolution and to the theory that the Universe was created twenty years ago by Wonder Woman.

And therein, a microcosm of thought in the US. Dualism on the one hand and dualism on the other.
