West Virginia lawmakers are working to indoctrinate public schoolchildren! The upcoming SB 619 would attempt to radically change the way public schools teach the theory of evolution. This dangerous bill will be heard tomorrow, so please act quickly!
SB 619 would allow public school teachers to teach “intelligent design,” a euphemism for religious creationism. Federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, have consistently held that creationism in public schools is unconstitutional religious instruction. With strong recent efforts to roll back the case law on the separation between state and church, West Virginians must show their vocal opposition to this bill!
SB 619 is moving fast, so please contact the West Virginia Senate Committee on Education today and tell them to reject it! We have included suggested language through the “Take Action” button, which you may customize as you see fit. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
