The Constitution and Religious Freedom

“The Constitution was written by people who had a sense of coming here for religious freedom, and (because of that) they tried to keep a lot of religion out of the Constitution,” says Ben Scheyer.

Scheyer took part in a class at Nebraska Wesleyan University last week that offered a wide-ranging discussion of creationism and evolution taught by Jim Hewitt, an adjunct history professor.

The goal of the class, Hewitt says, wasn’t to convince the students of any particular viewpoint, but to help them evaluate arguments on all sides.

Bob Reeves of the Lincoln Journal-Star has a report on the way right way to teach this issue.
