Aussies are getting the point.
The South Australian Non-Government Schools Registration Board has issued policies that reject "a science curriculum in a non-government school which is based on, espouses or reflects the literal interpretation of a religious text in its treatment of either creationism or intelligent design''.
Australian Christians are, naturally, upset:
The chief executive of Christian Schools Australia, Stephen O'Doherty, said the board statement was too strident, removing the right to teach ''biblical perspectives'' as part of science. ...
He said if the South Australian policy was taken literally, ''it means you cannot mention the Bible in science classes''.
