It's quite interesting that when churches say not to teach evolution or whatever, there's a huge cry of "separation of church and state", keep your nose out of politics etc. However, when the church agrees, it's front page news. Can anyone say "complete hypocrisy". There's obviously no separation of church and state in any of this. The criteria, as with everything else in the media and politics, is "do you agree with the editor's point of view" or "does this help the party in power". Separation of the two complete joke.

Tension betweenreligious belief and science is not unique to the Next Generation standards, Murphy said.
He cited the historic Scopes Trial of 1925, when a crusade to banish Darwin's theory of evolution from American classrooms put a high school biology teacher on trial for "illegally" teaching evolution in Tennessee.
In its release, the churches called on the Wyoming Board of Education to adopt educational standards that include climate change science, another touchy topic for lawmakers who crafted the budget footnote blocking the standards, and environmental advocates and scientists who lashed back. Matt Teeters, R Lingle, told the Star Tribune in an interview at the time the footnote passed that he was concerned that teaching global warming in Wyoming classrooms would harm the state's economy, which relies heavily on revenue from the oil and gas industry.

"It's just a historical statement," said the Rev. Warren Murphy,a Cody based Episcopalian minister and environmental projects coordinator for the Wyoming Association of Churches."None of us have any problems with understanding evolution, and it does not interfere with faith."
Their rhetoric contrasts with what several concerned religious parents told the state Board of Education at an Aprilmeetingwhere the Next Generation standards were last publicly discussed.
It is aright of parents and students to agree or disagree with what's being taught in classrooms, but it is not the state's or any one parent's right to restrict from children the opportunity to learn about evolution or other topics, like climate change, she said.
good science, and that's not good religion."
"We're just saying that they need to be talked about and discussed," he said."You don't hide the truth based on how much money you're going to make. That's not Nike Cortez Sale Mens

proven," Murphy said. "Faith is something else. It shouldn't interfere with what science is doing.
Conflicts arise when the Bible is taken literally, Murphy said, which some sects of Christianity do. A literal or fundamentalist interpretation of the Bible suggests that the Earth is about 6,000 years old, he said. The Next Generation standards say the Earth is 4.6 billion years old.
A committee will convene in July and August to review the state's science standards, as instructed by the state Board of Education after the footnote passed.
The Wyoming Association of Churches represents about 10 Protestant denominations statewide. No representative of the Roman Catholic Church is identified on a list of jurisdictions on the group's website.
When dealing with evolution, the Next Generation standards suggest that students should be able to identify differences between organisms living today and organisms in the fossil record to reconstruct evolutionary descent, among other things.
A court eventually dismissed the case, but not without thousands of bystanders witnessing a days long standoff between ideals of biblical fundamentalism and scientific discovery.
Wyoming churches endorse science standards
Several parentslambasted the K 12 standards for presenting an "atheistic" worldviewby teaching evolution.
"Our concern isn't fighting the Legislature, and it's not to take issue with other people's faith," Murphy said. "It's simply saying faith is a belief system; science isn't. Let's keep them separate."
The Wyoming Department of Education has said that documents containing any part of the Next Generation standards cannot be discussed.
The standards, which are guidelines school districts and teachers use when picking textbooks and lesson plans,were developed by 26 states and several national science education groups.
A statement to the Board of Education published by the nonprofit Wyoming Citizens Opposing the Common Core called the standards "opinionated" and asserted that they will present an atheistic worldview. The statement questioned whether the origins and nature of life are appropriate questions to ask in a science classroom.
The Wyoming Association of Churches said last week that it supports the Next Generation Science Standards because science should be taught openly and not be based on any belief system. A leader in the group said the state Legislature's recent move to block the standards infringed on students' rights.
A group of Wyoming churches has voiced its support for a set of educational benchmarks that are controversial in Wyoming for what they expect students to know about global climate change and evolution.
To date, nine states and the District of Columbia have adopted the standards.
Every bit of historical evidence show that the Christian religion is the most Evil thing ever perpetrated on mankind and all but the ignorant and unschooled, like you kool kat, know that the lie of Christianity is not going to save any of your "selves" or your souls. Cortez Shoes 2018 Mis education and misguided zeal do not make you right or your will prevail no matter how loud you scream. Most people in the world know that your truth is not true not even close to true. More and more people every day know that the Christian Religion gig is just a racket to keep men fighting wars and subjugating those "inferior" races. Practice your crazy rituals but bigots, hate mongers and cretans belong to your cults so stay there and out of the schools and governments and allow educated people with motives other than money to make some better rules to live by than the perverted morality you hypocrites practice. Freedom of religion means the freedom NOT to have one!

not necessarily back the Next Generation standards as "the best thing out there."
