The Right-Wing Plot to Undermine Science in Public Schools | Education | AlterNet.

This is a surprise to no one who has ever been a right-winger. Science and truth undermine things like laissez-faire capitalism and fundy gods. Right-wing resistance to basic science topics like sex education and evolution really do come about because that science ultimately *disproves* (or makes it really difficult to accept) central pillars of right-wing Christianity, such as male headship of the family, creationism and pro-life stances. It knocks down the whole house of cards for a lot of people, just like it did for me.
