Creationist censorship again

Fang-Face writes “Once again the religio-political elements of Texas are attempting to violate church/state separation; by promoting SCIENTIFIC CREATIONISM in a government milieu. Schools.

According to
a report at the First Amendment Center, publisher Holt, Rinehart & Winston caved in the face of a threat to their profit margin. The publisher excused the move as not being about censorship but about presenting alternative scientific viewpoints. The problem with that idea is that creationism is a solely religious viewpoint without any basis in science whatsoever. Plus, because Texas is the second largest procuror of textbooks in the U.S., although why they bother at all is beyond me, the inclusion of such religious material will be of national scope.”
