Cobb County Appeal to be Heard Thursday

Last January, U.S. District Judge Clarence Cooper ordered the Cobb County (Georgia) school district to remove intelligent design inspired stickers that assert evolution is "a theory, not a fact" from biology textbooks there. Cooper ruled they were an unconstitutional endorsement of religion that "tells some citizens that they are political outsiders while telling others they are political insiders."

Although the district scraped the stickers off almost 35,000 textbooks last spring, the school board appealed Cooper's ruling, arguing the sticker's language makes no mention of religion.

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the appeal Thursday. Read more, here.
