September 7, 1999


To the editor:

Recently, the Kansas Board of Education decided to no longer require that evolution to be taught. The decision had little to do with "local control" and even less to do with real science. Rather, the decision was based on religion.

Simply put, the majority of the board doesn't approve of evolution due to their religious beliefs, so evolution is out the door, not just for their children, but for every child in Kansas.

Our Founding Fathers were wise to enshrine separation of church and state in the Constitution. I hope soon that the Board's unconstitutional imposition of religious belief on the schoolchildren of Kansas is overturned in a court of law.
