Now he has written to CMI supporters and told them about the CrISIS letter to Mr Gove.
Of course he can't bring himself to tell his supporters the actual truth and has instead decided to misrepresent the letter by the simple expedient of missing out key words.
"In May new guidelines from the Department for Education were issued that outlaw any teaching of evolution-contradicting viewpoints in school science lessons. However, groups like CrISIS, in a press release, want much more: "to specifically prevent creationism being taught ...in any lesson or activity to children in state funded schools." If their wishes were ever granted, not only would it prevent outside Creation speakers from being invited into RE lessons and assemblies, but no teacher (regardless of the subject) could teach about these issues!"Did you spot the tell tale ". . .".
This is what he missed out:
"Creationism is known, and officially acknowledged, to be contrary to scientific fact. We therefore demand that creationism should not be presented as a valid scientific position, nor creationist websites and resources be promoted, in publicly funded schools or in any youth activities run on publicly funded school premises."(my emphasis)Thanks once again Phil for showing your true colours.
