Secular Humanism: The established religion of America's public schools

Wild Banshee has finally re-emerged in the larger blog universe. After a long hiatus, Wild Banshee posted a comment on the World Mag Blog today.

Marvin Olasky posted an excerpt from a recent Francis Beckwith article (the World Mag Blog link to the full article didn't work) on the blog. Francis Beckwith is a professor at Baylor University, and a couple of years ago, I had the privilege of hearing Professor Beckwith speak in person.

In the article, Beckwith discusses the fact that certain publicly funded institutions are offering instructions for how public school teachers should think about the relationship and differences between evolution and religion. This prompted Wild Banshee to post a response. My post isn't exactly on point, but it's a statement that I have wanted to make in a public forum for quite some time.
