Thom Hartmann's crazy alert

Both the Evangelical Movement and ISIS are Anti-Evolution Extremists

Rev. Bill Keller, LivePrayer.com, joins Thom Hartmann. As ISIS continues to take over more and more of Iraq - it's also dictating what students there can and can't learn about. In Mosul - schools have been given new sets of rules and curriculum from ISIS - which include things like the outlawing of patriotic songs and anthems - and the outlawing of chemistry and philosophy. ISIS has also banned the teaching of Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution. That one sounds kind of familiar right? It should. That's because all across our country - evangelical conservatives are trying to pass laws that would limit - or entirely remove - the teaching of evolution - along with other scientifically-proven subjects like climate change. Louisiana already has a law on the books that promotes teaching creationism and climate change denial. And - under the guise of "academic freedom" - last year - at least 4 states considered legislation that would have teachers teach creationism alongside evolution. Meanwhile - this week - the Texas Board of Education is considering implementing new textbooks that put a heavy focus on traditional Christian teachings - and that downplay or misinform on settled science. So - while ISIS may be dictating what can and can't be taught in Iraq - don't we have are own little form of ISIS right here in the US: the evangelical movement?
