Ooh... Twisted, Baby!

Our old friend, John Calvert, retired Lake Quivira attorney and founder of the ID Network, who represented the intelligent design forces at science hearings in Topeka last May, says Judge John Jones decision in the Dover case is ''twisted'' and said it converts evolution ''into an ideology,'' according to Associated Press writer John Hanna.

"So what is the significance of the decision for Kansas?" asks Hannah.

''This is a sweeping and bold decision that I think ought to make states, including Kansas, rethink any promotion of intelligent design,'' said Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

''It'd be pretty hard to fit the Kansas policy in between the lines of this decision [adds Lynn]...

''What we're trying to do is simply to give teachers permission to open up the discussion,'' Calvert said...

... Lynn said, the board isn't helping its case with the disclaimer saying the standards don't promote intelligent design.

''I don't think that such a statement passes the laugh test,'' Lynn said.

Take a look at the article, there's more analysis in Hanna's report about Dover-Kansas connection.
