I suppose under Hensley's bill biology students who do not believe in evolution can skip the entire body of knowledge based on evolution, and just substitute in creationism. The fact is, when you undertake a field of study, it is your institution's responsibility to educate you in the body of knowledge in that field. If you are unwilling to learn the field's body of knowledge, you need to find a different course of study.
How embarrassing for the state to have such an ignorant and cultish prayer. Here's an idea...why not just have a dignified moment of silence so that no one has to display their crazy? It's events like these that give companies and well-educated people second thoughts about coming to Tennessee.
The Tennessean works hard at making itself irrelevant and unsmart. I only look at it online to see if there is an occasional item not covered by City Paper or NBJ. Now that Tennessean is going to charge for online access, it really won't be worth it. If only they would put some effort into actual journalism!
So much for all those legislators who think that government should keep its mitts (pardon the pun) out of private enterprise. Vandy is a private university, but as soon as it does something the conservatives disagree with, there they are supporting government interference. Not to mention that certainly state-supported schools should not allow on-campus organizations to discriminate against any students who want to join. If they want to be exclusionary (and yes, I would include frats and sororities), let them do it on their own dime and in their own digs.
Donny629: God made us all, including Steve. And in America we have a principle that all people should have the same rights under the rule of law, including the right to marry.
This may be the one time I, a staunch democrat, vote Haslam in the gov's race, and dem elsewhere. I am so sick and tired of voting for democrats that are ideological hypocrites and intellectually challenged, or at least think that they have to act stupid and ignorant to get elected.
I just love how the right wingers think it is just fine for corporate money to take over elections, except when it is THEIR election.
