This is hot from the San Antonio Express-News: House passes evolution bill 70-23.
They’re talking about the Tennessee Creationism Bill about which we last wrote here: 30 Mar ’11 Update. This is the news:
Teachers who allow students to critique scientific theories would be shielded from discipline under a proposal that has passed the House.
The measure sponsored by Republican Rep. Bill Dunn of Knoxville was approved 70-23 on Thursday. The companion bill is awaiting a vote in the Senate Education Committee.
Handsome majority, isn’t it? There’s not much else in the news story, and there’s really not much we can say that we haven’t already said. But we’ll remind you of a prediction we made six weeks ago: Tennessee’s Creationism Bill Will Become Law.
