The Two Faces of ID

When they are speaking to the public -- as opposed to the message they convey when speaking to their fellow Christian fundamentalists -- we often hear spokespeople for intelligent design say they want to "teach the controversy." They even say, disingenuously, they want more evolution taught in public schools.

But what's really driving this know-nothing movement is given away by the actions of their supporters on the ground. A case in point:
