Anti-evolution and scientific literature
Anti-evolution is a minor religious issue. Most fundamentalists are unfamiliar with scientific literature. Often they're alarmingly ignorant of science, but for those with passionate convictions there's a vast alternative literature. Leading this movement are fundamentalists with science degrees. Prominent organizations include the Institute for Creation Research, Answers in Genesis and more recently the Discovery Institute.

Quote mining is a standard creationist tactic. It involves quoting passages from science literature out of context to support creationism. The Institute for Creation Research employed quote mining in its early days. The Discovery Institute employs a more sophisticated version which involves citing scientific articles which it claims support intelligent design.
