Free Speech, or Agree Speech?

One of the problems I wrote about in my book deals with the freedom of academics to espouse their belief in creationism. A teacher was denied tenure just because he said that creationism should be explored just like any scientific theory. This story is featured at http://www.evolutionnews.org/2008/02/protect_the_rights_of_teachers.html. They not only deny tenure to those who believe in intelligent creation, but now they will deny tenure to someone who believes that creationism should be studied scientifically. Why is science afraid of that? You would think that they would welcome a serious study so that they could use the information to destroy it. Are they afraid that it might be plausible? I think so. The truth about their lies needs to be exposed to the masses so that they can see just what they are staking their eternity on before it's too late!

There is a petition supporting academic freedom at http://www.academicfreedompetition.com/ . Let them know that freedom, like the truth is a knife that cuts both ways.
