They’re dropping like flies! It wasn’t very long ago when we posted Creationist Bill in Maine for 2019. It was one of those “controversial issues” jobs, that would outlaw any mention in school of anything that any political party regards as controversial.
Now our friends at the National Center for Science Education (NCSE) just posted: Maine’s “controversial issues” measure defeated. And get this — they say it “was unanimously rejected by the House Education and Cultural Affairs Committee on February 28, 2019.”
Whoopie — the House committee rejected it unanimously! Well, technically the committee voted “Ought Not To Pass.” Nice phrase.
NCSE also says that besides the bill in Maine there were four other “controversial issues” bills introduced in other states — and all of them have failed. Now, with the defeat of Maine’s bill, they’re all dead. That’s good news indeed!
But there are a few other creationist bills still active in other states, and the legislative season isn’t over yet, so stay tuned to this blog!
