In testimony on Thursday September 20th, former Dover school board member Carol “Casey” Brown explained that a mural painted by a recent grad of Dover High showing elements of Evolution including the classic assent of man from ape-like ancestors, that the student had donated to the science department in 1998 , had been burned by the high school janitor in 2003.

The janitor never received any punishment for the incident.

Probably a waste of time but an article on the conservative website MichNews caught my eye this morning.

Wednesday night a talk show on the Fox network hosted by loud mouth Bill O’Reilly, called the “O’Reilly Factor”, had as a guest the first paid lobbyist for those of us who support a secular government. Lori Lipman Brown, who works for the Secular Coalition For America, and the issues discussed included the latest Pledge of Allegiance case now in Federal Court.

Writer Michael J. Gaynor was not happy with how the interview turned out. It seems that his buddy O’Reilly failed to get the history of the Pledge correct and “allowed” Brown to gain an upper hand in the “debate”.

Proponents of ID smear Evolution by claiming that Evolution is not a fact and is disputed by many scientists then they claim that “our children should be told both sides of the story”. The Dover Area School district is one that fell for the “fairness” argument and now requires a disclaimer be given before Evolution is taught and refers students to an ID textbook.

It is not the government’s job to acknowledge religion of any kind and no one I know would support such a position. The only people who do are religious conservatives. If they didn’t they wouldn’t be fighting tooth and nail to keep the words “under God” in the pledge.
