Barry Lynn on Bush Endorsement of ID

"The young people of America are ill served by a president who confuses religion with science," says Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

"Bush has used his presidential pulpit to advance the ludicrous notion that evolution is in controversy and that 'intelligent design' is legitimate science. Surely, he knows that most religious people see no conflict between Bible teachings and the evidence of science.

"His irresponsible comments will likely score big points with Religious Right leaders, but they undermine the teaching of sound science in the nation's public schools," Lynn said. "The president has demonstrated a disturbing degree of scientific illiteracy, which may also explain his ideologically driven positions in other areas of scientific policy including stem cell research."
