Hall of Shame: Two Utah Officials
A Salt Lake Tribune editorial rightly nails state Sen. Chris Buttars and state Superintendent of Instruction Patti Harrington for criticizing the teaching of evolution. It's depressing that a person capable of saying there is "no evidence to connect the family of apes with the family of man" can get a job as the person in charge of all teaching in the state. But in Utah, Ms. Harrington said that and has that position. And Buttars went even further, saying any teacher who teaches evolution "will be dealth with."
