More Florida Follow-Up

Florida lawyer David Gibbs III of the Christian Law Association (and who represented Terri Schiavo's parents and siblings) has written a legal memo that says the state's proposed new science standards cross the line between science and faith—and the separation of church and state—because they single out evolution as the one foundation of modern biology, promoting it as a "belief system." An attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida calls Gibbs' argument "cockamamy." But colleagues of Gibb's say that a more detailed memo is in the works and will be sent to the State Board of Education, which plans to vote on the proposed standards on February 19. —Heather Wax
