People Evolved. No They Didn’t. | August 31, 2009


Certain people, I think, are more interested in playing into their own stereotype than accomplishing anything. At all.

Missouri Students created a T-shirt for the school showing the silhouettes of a monkey slowly becoming homo erectus. Psychopathic parents. That’s a banning.

From Think Progress:

“I was disappointed with the image on the shirt,” said Sherry Melby, a band parent who teaches in the district. “I don’t think evolution should be associated with our school.” Assistant superintendent Brad Pollitt explained that the t-shirts were banned because they were imposing on religious views:

Though the shirts don’t violate the school’s dress code, Pollitt noted that the district is required by law to remain neutral on religion.

They consider it religion.
