The "ID" people rely on the very comforting, all-American, "teach the controversy" mantra. Hmmm..lessee.. gay sex is pretty controversial. How 'bout they start teaching that in health class along side hetero- sex. Ebonics is also controversial.. yo? That variant of English should be taught too... yo?

Since Louisana kids have to get both sides, how far does this go? English class --> teach English and Ebonics?? Science -> real science and creationism Health class --> Heterosexual sex and homosexual sex? Somehow, I doubt the last alternative will fly. Even though, it's presenting both sides of a very controversial issue.
