A THEORY HAS CIVIL LIBERTIES?

Evolution Sticker on Trial by Terry Phillips, November 9, 2004.

From Focus on The Family, comes news that the American Civil Liberites Union (ACLU) is suing to keep stickers that read "Evolution Is Just A Theory" off of science textbooks.

Warning stickers about Darwin's theory of man's origin is being challenged in court.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is challenging a Georgia law that requires science textbooks to have a warning sticker reminding students that the theory of evolution is just that, a theory. The sticker is a necessary disclaimer, since for too long science theory has been presented as science fact. For too long the "theory of evolution" has been presented to our junior and senior high schoolers as fact. It is not; and to believe in the transmigration of species is a matter of faith, not science.

My question is what business is this of the ACLU? Who's civil rights are being impeded? The ACLU needs to bark up some other tree. Where was the ACLU when Christians were told in science books that their Bible was filled with myth? It seems that the ACLU favors the rights of some more than others.

By faith we believe the following: "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth....in six days....and on the seveth day he rested."
