As reported here, John Boehner, the new Republican leader of the House, teamed up with another Ohio Republican (Steve Chabot) to push an attack on evolution.
In a 2002 letter (PDF format), Boehner writes:
"Public school students are entitled to learn that there are differing scientific views on issues such as biological evolution."
Yet another Republican who doesn’t understand the meaning of the word "scientific". Jeez.
