speaking of Intelligent Design

I thought this was a nice try:

TALLAHASSEE – If teachers need free speech protection in science classrooms, why not extend it to sex education classes?

The same First Amendment protection should be offered to both, argued local Democratic Sens. Ted Deutch of Boca Raton and Nan Rich of Weston, as the Senate Thursday began debating whether teachers need a law that would allow them to present “scientific evidence” critical of evolution.


“We’re talking about academic freedom,” said Deutch. “In an abstinence-only sex education program, a teacher may wish to answer a student’s question and provide additional information that may protect a life or stop an unwanted pregnancy.” But the Republican-led Senate wouldn’t buy it.
