“Children should learn science in science class, not religion disguised as science,” said the Rev. Brant Copeland, pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Tallahassee. “To speak of evolution as a theory in the context of these standards is to minimize its importance as the basic concept in biological science; because, as a Christian, I am not threatened by what science can tell us about God’s marvelous, mysterious and every-changing creation.

    Oh, that we had more like him on this planet……
