Creationism to be banished from Swedish schools

Quote:

‘The Swedish government is to crack down on the role religion plays in independent faith schools. The new rules will include a ban on biology teachers teaching creationism or ‘intelligent design’ alongside evolution.

“Pupils must be protected from all forms of fundamentalism,” said Education Minister Jan Bj√∂rklund to Dagens Nyheter.”

Bloody brilliant. No further commentary needed; yes, i am lazy, but this speaks for itself and it is a good thing!
