Battle on Teaching Evolution Sharpens

Battle on Teaching Evolution Sharpens

Buried deep, a bold statement of the real agenda:

"To fundamentalist Christians, Fox said, the fight to teach God's role in creation is becoming the essential front in America's culture war. The issue is on the agenda at every meeting of pastors he attends. If evolution's boosters can be forced to back down, he said, the Christian right's agenda will advance.

'If you believe God created that baby, it makes it a whole lot harder to get rid of that baby,' Fox said. 'If you can cause enough doubt on evolution, liberalism will die.'"

Where's Clarence Darrow when we need him?
