Using religion to teach Evolution?

From WorldNetDaily...

California parent Jeanne Caldwell filed the suit yesterday against the National Science Foundation and the University of California at Berkeley.

"In this stunning example of hypocrisy, the same people who so loudly proclaim that they oppose discussion of religion in science classes are clamoring for public school teachers to expressly use theology in order to convince students to support evolution," said Larry Caldwell, president of Quality Science Education for All, who is co-counsel in the suit with the Pacific Justice Institute....

The website at the center of the current lawsuit, called "Understanding Evolution," directs teachers to doctrinal statements by 17 religious denominations and groups endorsing evolutionary theory....

In one suggested activity, teachers are to share with students statements by religious leaders on evolution, but only those "stress[ing] the compatibility of theology with the science of evolution."

In another activity, students are assigned to interview ministers about their views on evolution, with the purpose of showing students "Evolution is OK!"

Teachers are cautioned, however, that this particular activity may not work if they live in a community that is "conservative Christian."

I'm downloading the entire site as I write this. The site is a perfect example of the kind of moronic double-think/rationalization Evolutionists do in order to believe in their religion. It'll make a great example to my kids of what science is most definitely NOT.

Unfortunately for the California parents filing suit, Evolution is the state religion, and it'll be an uphill battle to get any judge to rule against the preaching of it in government schools.

So what's your real beef with the site?
While we're at it, why are you guys so staunchly set against evolution in the first place? As your WorldNet-quotes prove, evolution says NOTHING about religion, only about the literacy of Genesis.

Other than it being religion paraded as “science” and encouraging government-school teachers to undermine the religious beliefs of the students in their classroom as well as degrading true education by pushing pseudo-science—why nothing at all..

You have horrible reading comprehension. The WND quote, nowhere even hints at, let alone “proves” that “Evolution says nothing about religion”.

Evolution is a religion being foisted on society as science, which therefore undermines real science. It is pushed on impressionable school children using money taken from taxpayers at gunpoint. That it is even being taught in schools would be laughable were it not so pathetic. That both science as well as the Constitution must be sacrificed so this state religion can be forced down the throats of people makes a mockery of what America is supposed to be about.
