I go on a little vacation and look what happens, the monkeys come out of the trees. I notice several new bloggers who obviously arrived on the Senate Site by request in order to show a little support for Buttars Bill.
Ahh, but what did you expect.
Since it’s the new year, time to make those resolutions, I guess this would be a good enough time to take a little reality check. Reality: despite a tech savvy group of folks who totally oppose this Bill, there is (or will be) a lot of popular support for this Bill. What am I talking about? Let’s take a closer look at a poll published by the Deseret News back in March:
This is basically saying that 70% of Utahans believe that Creationism/ID “definitely” or “probably” should be taught alongside evolution in high school biology classes, and only a mere 25% of Utahans think that it at least probably should not. Basically, if Buttars Bill where to be put to a popular referendum, it would easily win and pass into law despite what any Judge in Pennsylvania might say, or even the Federal Supreme Court.
Also, though we may not like to admit it, Gayle Ruzicka, and her minions in the Utah Eagle Forum, carry a lot of political weight. And in just a few days, they are going to get energized for the battle by the fruitcake supreme herself - Phyllis Schlafly. If you want a little taste of what she is going to be dishing out read this!
So you know what this means. It’s time to make that new years resolution – use your democratic rights and write your representatives, protest, throw a fit if you feel you need to, before we waste thousands of our hard earned tax dollars rehashing this old debate.
Ahh, but that’s already to late isn’t it.
