Comer believed science teachers might appreciate the opportunity to hear a nationally recognized expert speak on an issue that is relevant to their jobs. Agency officials believed differently." For this she was terminated, then given the option to resign.<br/> <br /> "Comer filed a lawsuit in federal court, arguing that the agency’s demand for neutrality between evolution and creationism has the effect of promoting religion. The Supreme Court and lower federal courts, after all, have ruled that creationism is a religious concept that is not suited for public schools."<br /> <br /> On March 31st, U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel (one of the conies appointed by President George W. Bush), ruled that "the demand for neutrality is reasonable, given that the members of the Board of Education are often divided on these issues as well."<br /> <br /> So <a href="http://www.thinkatheist.com/profiles/blogs/teaching-the-wrong-controversy" target="_blank">what about all the other controversies</a>? Should science teachers be remaining neutral on them as well?<br /> <br /> <font size="1">Nod to <a href="http://blog.au.org/2009/04/01/lone-star-disgrace-texas-science-educator-loses-lawsuit-over-ouster/" target="_blank">Americans United for Separation of Church and State</a>.</font>
