NH to inhibit teaching of evolution

I have distressing news, and I don't know quite what to do about it yet. New Hampshire's state government is considering placing new restrictions on the teaching of evolution.

The two antievolution bills on the horizon in New Hampshire have now been prefiled in the state House of Representatives. House Bill 1148, introduced by Jerry Bergevin (R-District 17), would charge the state board of education to "[r]equire evolution to be taught in the public schools of this state as a theory, including the theorists' political and ideological viewpoints and their position on the concept of atheism."

That's not the only one, either.

I am genuinely distressed by this, and will begin organizing opposition as best I can some time within the week.  Make sure, at least, that my friends and family know how to do something about it.

I'll continue to update on the subject here.
