More Judge Jones bashing
Overreacting to teachers informing students of a library book on intelligent design, Jones not only found an egregious establishment of religion, he indignantly made it a violation of the Constitution to require so much as critical analysis of evolution in the science classroom. Let freedom ring.
Yes, what you thought was science is now constitutionally protected dogma in William Penn's back woods, federally sheltered as untouchable and immune from criticism. In delivering his opinion in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District, Jones became a hero to beleaguered Darwinists who, unable to hold off scientific criticism much longer, gladly traded freedom's ring for a protective ring of federal marshals. Turning the bench into a pulpit and the Constitution into a papal decree, Jones preached:To preserve the separation of church and state mandated by the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment … we will enter an order permanently enjoining [the school board] from . . . requiring teachers to denigrate or disparage the scientific theory of evolution. . . .
. . . . Jones' salutary effectiveness, technically binding only in his little Vatican, chilled freedom nationwide. Now any talk of "critical analysis of evolution" is heard as "disparaging revealed dogma," with theophobic evolutionists alleging religious motives behind every attempt to educate rather than indoctrinate.
There is a lot more good stuff in the article.
Now Judge Jones is going to respond by shouting, "judicial independence, judicial independence . . . ."
Never before in American history have so many given so much weight to the opinion of a single judge.
