Tennessee To Protect Teachers Who Allow Students To Criticize Evolution And Global Warming In Classrooms

A controversial Tennessee bill that has passed both House and Senate is poised to become law on April 20th, albeit without Governor Bill Haslam's signature. The new law would protect teachers who allow students to deny evolution and climate change. 

I wish lawmakers would instead pass a law mandating the teaching of evolution in churches.

  1. This law turns the clock back nearly 100 years here in the seemingly unprogressive South and is simply embarrassing. There is no argument against the Theory of Evolution other than that of religious doctrine. The Monkey Law only opens the door for fanatic Christianity to creep its way back into our classrooms. You can see my visual response as a Tennessean to this absurd law on my artist’s blog at with some evolutionary art and a little bit of simple logic.
