Another ACLU Attack on Religion

January 14, 2005

U.S. District Judge Clarence Cooper and the ACLU have inched yet another step forward on the steady attack on anything associated with religion when, “the federal judge Thursday ordered a suburban Atlanta school system to remove stickers from its high school biology textbooks that call evolution "a theory, not a fact," saying the disclaimers are an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.”, from an article written by Doug Gross of the Associated Press. The summary, which ruled in favor of the ACLU’s argument, puts into focus their unending agenda to indoctrinate all public schools to one particular point of view rather than permit opposing ones.

"By denigrating evolution, the school board appears to be endorsing the well-known prevailing alternative theory, creationism or variations thereof, even though the sticker does not specifically reference any alternative theories," U.S. District Judge Clarence Cooper said.”, again quoting from the AP article.

Excuse me for mentioning it; but, how does pointing out the fact that evolution, as it appears in most school textbooks, is listed as a theory. I point this out simply because I have not read any of the newer textbooks or attended the classes in which the theory of evolution was expounded upon. The honorable Judge Cooper might contemplate a refresher course in English Language Skills. There was no denigrating; by definition, a condescending or belittling of the stated theory of evolution. There was not any mention of any religious theory as eluded to in “creationism or variations thereof” which might offer a conflicting opinion either, or for that matter any offered alternative opinion.

"This is a great day for Cobb County students," said Michael Manely, an (ACLU) attorney for the parents who sued over the stickers. "They're going to be permitted to learn science unadulterated by religious dogma." This victory for the masses means that the students of Cobb County will now be totally and thoroughly indoctrinated to the idea that science has all the answers; some of them are based on good guess work, faulty reasoning and other human frailties, but these are from the best minds and of course they comply with our particular mindset. Put another Bible on the fire, its getting chilly in here.

Those who wish to ridicule faith based theories or opposing view points are themselves guilty of depriving freedom of expression. As a matter of interest, my thesaurus has included “superior” and “full of yourself” as alternatives for the denigrating. It is highly possible that the ACLU and Judge Cooper feel they are superior to those who have an open mind and might consider alternatives to the theory of evolution; there appears to be no doubt that they are full of it.
