Squeaker in Texas

The Dallas Morning News reports “the State Board of Education on Thursday narrowly turned aside a last-ditch effort by social conservatives to require that ‘weaknesses’ in the theory of evolution be taught in science classes in Texas.”  It was a 7-7 tie, so it wasn’t a clear-cut victory.   Rest assured the terrier-like ankle-biting engaged in by disgruntled creationists has been deflected only temporarily.  Read the whole report here.

It’s amusing to me that these “teach the weaknesses/teach the controversy” whiners would have heart attacks at the suggestion that books like Bishop Spong’s Jesus for the Nonreligious or anything by Bart Ehrman be taught in church.
