Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal endorsed teaching creationism in public schools, by way of the state’s creationism law, a misnamed and misguided piece of legislation called the Louisiana Science Education Act. In a recent interview with NBC News, Jindal said:

„Let’s teach them about intelligent design … What are we scared of?“

Governor Jindal, we are scared of the harm to Louisiana students and to our state. The Louisiana Science Education Act has already hurt our economy.
