A New Fangle Buckle on The Bible Belt?

In the interest of keeping true to my roots (if my mother saw my post about the Irish Roman Catholic EU cock-block, she would've had something to say about it), I thought I'd throw this up.

Those crazy American Protestant fundamentalists (in Florida, at least) are getting evolution theory rammed down their throats, and they ain't having it.

"Some (students) come armed with “Ten questions to ask your biology teacher about evolution,” a document circulated on the Internet that highlights supposed weaknesses in evolutionary theory. Others scrawl their opposition on homework assignments. Many just tune out."

Yup. They only tune out in biology class. Those brainwashed hicks KILL IT in every other area of the curriculum, son!

It's difficult to say what's more alarming about that article: the picture of two obviously creationist youths evidently planning to glass (flask? beaker?) the biol. teacher, the description of said students as having an "abiding mistrust in evolution", or the fact that the teacher is reduced to relying upon Mickey Mouse to introduce the concept of evolutionary biology. *shudder*
