Lip Service

John Brummett, a columnist for the Arkansas News Bureau in Little Rock, has written an interesting commentary on how politicians who lack the courage of their own convictions sometimes pay lip service to intelligent design:
Mike Beebe has liberals mad at him for the way he answered that question from the Little Rock paper about "intelligent design," which is a euphemism for a right-wing religious finesse to get church views on divine creation forced on the science teachers in the public schools.

He said he was for it - the teaching, that is - except that it might be unconstitutional and goodness knew he didn't want to do anything unconstitutional.
It's worth reading the whole thing...
