Senator Buttars And The Windmill Tilt.

Senator Buttars' bills on Evolution and Gay/Straight clubs are related: They both address problems Senator Buttars thinks are pressing but do not actually exist in the real world. Evolution: His bill addresses the problem of "opinionated teachers" teaching that man descended from apes and by extension, there is no God. He claims he has heard from "several parents" who are concerned with Evolution education in public schools. There is no actual problem here. Somehow, miraculously, Utah public schools graduate thousands of students each year who not only still believe in God, but in the case of Seminary attendees, know more about God than when they began public school. His concern not only shows a total lack of understanding of what happens in science classes, but also dramatically overestimates the actual amount of science education students receive and retain. Gay/Straight: Senator Buttars claims the clubs are illegal because they talk about sex. It has already been clearly established that these clubs do not talk about sex, but do service projects and provide emotional support for a section of the student population that is FOUR TIMES MORE LIKELY TO COMMITT SUICIDE. I think it's best to leave them alone. Once again, he is writing legislation to combat a problem that doesn't exist. The clubs are not sex clubs. Yet he is ready to write legislation as if they were.

Besides, if we wanted to ban all activities where kids talk about sex, we'd have no sports, band, drama, debate, math class, etc.

What else is new? Buttars does this every year. He did the Pledge of Allegiance Thing forgetting that pretty much every school does it every day anyways.
In a loose sense, I support Buttars on these, but I don't support his methods, his outlandishness, his lack of understanding, his involvement of big government, his rehetoric, his using big government to pursue his personal vendettas (one of the chief underlying reasons he's doing this here), his assumption that he is an "expert" (as an ID'er, I'd rather have Frosty the Snowman be my expert), his pursuing on constant media attention (he must like the MSM), and so on and so on.

Evolution, monkeys, butter; sounds like a great time to me!

Please, do not re-elect Buttars the monkey. He is wasting time and money with his personal, gay and God envy bullshit.
