We usually don’t write about letters-to-the-editor with which we agree, but we always make an exception for philosophy professor Barbara Forrest, a star witness for the winning side in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District. She is a founder of the Louisiana Coalition for Science.
Dr. Forrest has a letter in Houma Today, the online edition of the Courier, the oldest surviving newspaper in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. Her letter is about a topic already familiar to our readers, the campaign started by Zachary Kopplin to repeal Louisiana’s infinitely misguided creationism law. Our last post on this was 41 Nobel Laureates for Repeal.
Barbara’s letter is Act should be repealed. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
[We’d like to give you some excerpts from the letter, but that paper is being acquired by Stephens Media, and they’re suing bloggers who excerpt their content without permission. So you’ll have to click over there to read it for yourself.]
You can read about that rally at Barbara’s website: Rally at Capitol to support SB 70: Repeal of Louisiana Science Education Act.
Now then, dear reader, what do you think will happen with this repeal effort? If reason prevails, it will succeed. Think carefully before you make a prediction, because we’re talking about Louisiana.
