City Allows Creationism, Feels the Heat

The heavens declare the glory of God,and the sky proclaims the work of His hands. - Ps. 19:1

There was a time when not teaching about God and His creation would have led to an outcry. The Grantsburg, WI School Board has taken a courageous stand against the intolerant naturalists and is feeling the pressure. The issue? The school board is allowing more than one theory of origins [read belief system] to be taught.

GRANTSBURG, Wis. - The city's school board has revised its science curriculum to allow the teaching of creationism, prompting an outcry from more than 300 educators who urged that the decision be reversed.

School board members believed that a state law governing the teaching of evolution was too restrictive. The science curriculum "should not be totally inclusive of just one scientific theory," said Joni Burgin, superintendent of the district of 1,000 students in northwest Wisconsin.

Last month, when the board examined its science curriculum, language was added calling for "various models/theories" of origin to be incorporated.

The decision provoked more than 300 biology and religious studies faculty members to write a letter last week urging the Grantsburg board to reverse the policy. It follows a letter sent previously by 43 deans at Wisconsin public universities. [more]
