Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas...

"Secular campaigners called on ministers to ban the teaching of creationism in state-funded schools, warning that failure to do so would allow "every crackpot religious group to start peddling their own mad fantasies in schools."

Goddamn. This is a great example of why I love my adopted country so passionately. Sure, you get the occasional religious fanatic trying to push his ridiculous anti-science agenda, and the wussy Prime Minister making weak excuses for why it might be sort of acceptable ("good results"...uh, OK, Tony), but it seems like most everybody else isn't afraid to call it a huge, steaming pile of horseshit.
