Creationism bill becomes Tenn. law
It's a never ending battle with these republicans.

Tennessee will now allow the discussion of creationism theory in its classrooms.
The controversial legislation — known as the “Monkey Bill” by those who said it attacked teaching evolution — became law on Tuesday without Gov. Bill Haslam’s signature, Reuters reported. The Republican governor said he allowed the legislation encouraging classroom debate about evolution to become law despite his misgivings because he thinks it will not significantly affect the state’s science curriculum.

RE: Creationism bill becomes Tenn. law
The article does not say which classroom.

If it's the science class, then once again, like with health care, the rest of the world is laughing at the US again. Sad really.

If it's a comparitive history of religions class then ... yippee!

Because:

  1. Reading the bible is a first step towards atheism
  2. They can learn the truth about how it all started: Muspelheim and Niflheim

Well I don't know about you, but when my daughter gets to the point she is having kids. I want her to go to a doctor that supports the "Stork" theory during her pregnancy. It makes sooooo much more sense Tongue

I live in Louisiana so I have to worry about this shit when my daughter goes to school. I'll be thoroughly investigating each curriculum for shenanigans like this.

There's already something in Louisiana about this sort of thing.

La SB70 was voted against in a 5-1 vote. It would have repealed the creationist bill. Hobo Sometimes I'm just ashamed.
