Holier Than Thou

Hays, Kansas residents, carrying a sign that reads "No Vouchers" greeted Kansas Education Commissioner Bob Corkins and State Board member Connie Morris, last night.

More from CSA's report from the Hays stop on the Kansas Roadshow:

“You’re talking about sending tax money to religious schools,” said one Hays resident. “You’re trying to promote religion in the state science standards. We’re all here because of religion, and you know it. Sir, I’m just as religious as you are (Morris smirks) and I don’t want my kids and grandkids having your religion forced on them in the public schools.” (Audience cheers and applauds)

Corkins and Morris both denied that religion is in the state science standards. Morris encouraged all to go to and read the standards to see that intelligent design isn’t mentioned in the standards.

“Then why did you take out ‘natural’?” the man asked to the sound of cheers and applause from those present.

“I’m not going to argue with you, sir,” said Morris.

“I’m not arguing, I’m asking a question,” responded the man.

Morris smirked again, and remained silent.
