As I posted a couple of weeks ago, there’s a law still on the books in Louisiana that says if evolution is taught in public schools, then Creationism can be taught as well.
It’s obviously illegal, but unless the state legislature takes action to remove it, it’s going to stay there.
Removing that law is what Republican State Senator Dan Claitor tried to do with Senate Bill 156.
Guess what? His bill failed. The Senate Education Committee rejected his common sense legislation on a 4-2 vote.
The politicians refused to remove a dead law from the records, even though it cannot be enforced… I guess they hope that teaching Creationism will eventually become legal again and, when that glorious day arrives, they’ll be ready!
Is anyone surprised? These people believe Jesus rose from the dead. Why not laws, too?
This was Claitor’s third attempt to repeal the law. So much for it being a charm.
