Bouyed by the victory of Dubya in last year's elections, evangelical Christians have turned to the schools. Not to get more "edumacation," oh, no! But to get the theory of intelligent design taught alongside evolution.

Personally, I have always thought that the evolution was elegant enough to be proof of intelligent design. But apparently, that isn't enough. So, our kids are going to be taught that a "creator" made the universe.

I only want to know which "Creator" is going to get the credit? The Creator of the Judaeo-Christo-Islamic tradition? The Creator of the Native American tradition? The creator of the Hindu tradition? The Creator of the Greco-Roman tradition (Just because they don't have worshippers doesn't mean they didn't really create the universe.) Whose truth do we teach?

More importantly, if we have to teach intelligent design in church, do we have to teach evolution in Sunday School? It's only fair!
