Indiana: Dover's Long Arm

"Last fall, state Rep. Bruce A. Borders, R-Jasonville, said he would introduce a bill this year seeking to make intelligent design a required subject in Indiana's public schools if no other lawmaker did," according to Robert King of The Indianapolis Star.

On Tuesday, Borders, who considers much of the theory of evolution to be built on false claims, tried to keep his promise but submitted a bill that didn't go nearly as far as he had hoped.

Instead, he offered House Bill 1388, which mandates "accuracy in textbooks" but makes no mention of intelligent design.

His about-face, he said, was the result of a Dec. 20 ruling by a federal judge in Pennsylvania that denounced intelligent design as "relabeled creationism" and a violation of the separation of church and state.
