Warning to Parents
In Kenya, a Pentecostal bishop has demanded that evidence for human evolution be hidden from public view. In an opinion piece published in Nairobi's East African Standard, a retired surgeon asks, "What would the bishop say if scientists tried to pressurise the Government to erect signs in front of every Pentecostal church, bearing the message: 'Warning to parents. The teachings in this establishment consist of mere assertions and may confuse your children, causing lasting damage to their ways of thinking'."
