Texas GOP’s platform supports intelligent design

Thanks to Tony’s Curricublog, I came across the 2008 platform of the Texas GOP.

According to their platform:

We support objective teaching and equal treatment of strengths and weaknesses of scientific theories, including Intelligent Design. We believe theories of life origins and environmental theories should be taught as scientific theory, not scientific law. Teachers and students should be able to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these theories openly and without fear of retribution or discrimination of any kind.

This language is certainly reminiscent of the anti-evolution legislation that just passed in Louisiana.

Get ready to fight for science, Texans.
