“I don’t believe that it’s the role of government or the role of schools to settle controversial issues.”
That’s what doctor, state legislator, and losing gubernatorial candidate Jim Barnett says about his views on teaching evolution. He also thinks that there are two “sides of the issue” to be presented in science class.
Barnett, of course, thinks that government policy should be based on the controversial position that human life begins at the moment of conception. One only hopes that he thinks it’s OK to address only one side of the controversial issue of the earth’s motion around the sun.
