"federal Judge John Jones III issued a ruling that should delight all Americans who care about science, about education--indeed, about the very values of reason and critical thinking that underlie our democracy."
I think he is having a hissy fit - this author. What is happening is not a protection of democracy - it is evidence that our public education system is Forclosed. We have to judge with law what is being "taught" as if religeon was some frightening malice that will instantly spell doom for the porn industry.
Incidentally I think that most of these people are just afraid that enought people will become religeous to make porn harder to get. I know there is little connection but still it makes for a better more interesting story than Public Education Stinks and no answer is in sight.
