The Kansas State Board of Education removed the ‘intelligent design’ propaganda from the state’s school system, but that won’t end the battle. I don’t think people fully understand how rabid some of the fundamentalist are here in the Kansas/Missouri area. It doesn’t matter what the populace wants; it doesn’t matter what the majority believe; it doesn’t even matter what the Supreme Court rules: these folks are right, everyone else is wrong.
In Missouri, even after the vote that allowed for stem cell research, state representatives want to place another vote on the ballot in 2008 on this issue again. The only way to stop this is to stop putting these people into office, or barring that, stop giving them any power.
