Governor Keeps Quiet about Evolution

April 28th, 2008 by flanews

The fight over what Florida students will be taught about the origin of man continued Monday in Tallahassee. Last week the academic freedom bill cleared the Senate. Monday the House passed its version of the bill aimed at giving teachers the right to teach students about the holes in Darwins theory. Opponents of the bill say it would allow teachers to teach religion in the classroom. Governor Charlie Crist still hasnt taken a public stance on the bill.

I have to see what they just passed. It just happened seconds ago, said Crist. In all fairness I should look at it before I give an opinion.

The legislation will go back to the Senate for a final vote before the Governor will be forced to take a stance and decide whether or not hell sign the bill into law.
