Chris Comer comes back
WHAT? NOT NEUTRAL? WHO? ME?
There is a resemblance.
I thought that we heard the last of Chris Comer, but apparently not.
A news article says,
AUSTIN – A former state science curriculum director on Wednesday sued the Texas Education Agency and Education Commissioner Robert Scott, alleging she was illegally fired for forwarding an e-mail about a lecture critical of the movement to promote intelligent design in science classes.
Christina Comer, who lost her job at the TEA last fall, said in a suit filed in federal court in Austin that she was terminated for contravening an "unconstitutional" policy at the agency. The policy required employees to be neutral on the subject of creationism – the biblical interpretation of the origin of humans, she said.
The policy was in force, according to the suit, even though the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that teaching creationism as science in public schools is illegal.
"The agency's 'neutrality' policy has the purpose or effect of endorsing religion, and thus violates the Establishment Clause" of the U.S. Constitution, the lawsuit said.
Imagine -- "The agency's 'neutrality' policy has the purpose or effect of endorsing religion." Sheeeesh. The Darwinists are getting more and more aggressive.
More information is on the website of the National Center for Science Education. A copy of the complaint filed at the court is here.
This blog has several articles about Chris Comer (she has her own post label in the sidebar).
