Texas politicians backing illegal education

The Texas Tribune reports that every candidate for the Lieutenant Governor position in Texas wants to teach creationism in public schools. Never mind that it’s repeatedly been found illegal.

(Jerry) Patterson did not mention creationism in his response directly but said he thought schools had focused too much on political correctness out of what he called a mistaken belief that the U.S. Constitution mandated the separation of church and state.

“Show me where that’s in the Constitution, because it’s not in the Constitution,” he said.

Apparently, Mr. Patterson is unfamiliar with the Establishment Clause.
