"Take a Little Bite, Then Another and Another"
AFP has a good report on the Dover, Penn. situation where last January the school board ordered teachers to tell students that Darwinism is not proved, and to teach as well an alternate theory, "intelligent design," which posits that a grand creator, God, is responsible for the development of living organisms. Here's a sample:
- "If we continue to indoctrinate our young people with non-religious principles, we're headed for an internal destruction of this society," he said.
- "We've been attacked by the intelligent, educated segment of the culture," he said, adding that the school board's declaration is just a first step.
- "It took 30 or 40 years to eliminate God in school, it will take probably 30 or 40 years to get him back. You take a little step first, a little bite, then another little bite and another,"
