Pennsylvania banishes Intelligent Design


A Pennsylvania judge has found firmly against a local school board that required the teaching of "Intelligent Design" in biology lessons. The "Rev" Pat Robertson will doubtless have some hellfire to rain down on the citizens of Dover. Judge John Jones found:
"It is ironic that several of these individuals, who so staunchly and proudly touted their religious convictions in public, would time and again lie to cover their tracks and disguise the real purpose behind the ID Policy.

"We find that the secular purposes claimed by the board amount to a pretext for the board's real purpose, which was to promote religion in the public school classroom."
