How is teaching ID unconstitutional? Isn't silencing people and not allowing them to teach about something (whether it is right or wrong) unconstitutional?

I suppose we've banned teaching of any ideas that might be arbitrarily classified as "hate material" (critisizing corporations is banned - after all they're "people" too), "pornography" (even so much as a nipple under any context), and "terrorist" (i.e. anarchist or anti-establishment). So under this pretext there's no reason not to ban ID theory/philosophy/whatever...we've already banned free thought and free speech which are more important and the what prevent anything else from being banned anyways.

Although the moon is smaller than the earth, it is farther away.
