Judge Orders School District to Remove Evolution Stickers From Textbooks
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the San Francisco Chronicle and other news sources are reporting that a Federal Judge in Atlanta has ordered the Cobb County school system to remove stickers from text books which indicate that evolution is a theory rather than factual Judge Clarence Cooper said that by doing so, the school system is impermissibly endorsing a religious doctrine in violation of the Establishment Clause.
As Judge Cooper stated:
"Adopted by the school board, funded by the money of taxpayers, and inserted by school personnel, the sticker conveys an impermissible message of endorsement and tells some citizens that they are political outsiders while telling others they are political insiders,"
