Why "Buttars v. Monkeys" MUST FAIL

Let There Be Evolution In Utah referenced a comment left at the Senate Site. It illustrated the severely damaging consequences to Senator Buttars' bill. It was written by a Junior High student. Here's part of it: "I believe that you have a certain obligation to your church and to your God to stand up for the things that are in this bill. As a Mormon, I believe that you are suppose to take this opportunity and try to help our Great state of Utah find some truth, some light in the dark world of Science!" A JUNIOR HIGH STUDENT! This bill forces students to choose between science and religion.

The jr. high student comment is creepy on one hand and admirable on the other. Creepy because he/she thinks his/her (and my) religion support the Buttars bill. Admirable because he/she (unlike my two jr. high sons) knows about the Senate site and has some kink of interest in what is going on at the Legislature.
