Submission + - Westboro Baptist Member Runs for KS School Board (

kstatefan40 writes: "From the Wichita Eagle:

"A Kansas state school board candidate who describes evolution as "Satanic lies" and wants to stop public schools from teaching the theory attends Westboro Baptist, the Topeka church known for anti-gay protests worldwide.

Jack Wu told The Topeka Capital-Journal that he decided to run for the State Board of Education after learning that Democratic incumbent Carolyn Campbell, also from Topeka, would otherwise be unopposed for a second term in the 4th District of eastern Kansas. Campbell supports the state's current science standards, which treat evolution as a well-established, core scientific concept."

It looks like my home state gets to make the news for denying science yet again — but this takes it to a whole new level."
