Why not it is only fair - if you start puting stickers on books it makes it easier to find the ones you want to burn

This is all his words:

My bible sticker for your textbook sticker

White House correspondent David Ryan

In today's Journal-World, Phil Kline is quoted as saying that stickers emphasizing that evolution is a theory, not a fact, "would be a 'reasonable compromise' to end the political warfare about evolution that has dogged the board the past six years."

I'm glad to see the A.G. is interested in reasonable compromise.

In that spirit, I humbly suggest the following additional compromise: put a sticker on every bible stating the following:

This bible is made up of stories, not facts. Serious disagreement among biblical scholars has existed for thousands of years about these stories. The stories in this bible should not be taken as literal truth or as facts. There are hundreds of other religious stories throughout the world that contradict and call into question the stories in this bible. This bible should therefore be approached with a spirit of critical consideration.

If the A.G. starts putting such stickers on every bible sold in Kansas, I'll sign off on his evolution textbook scare tactics.

That would be a fair compromise.
