The Clergy Letter Project

Yes! Finally there seems to be a counter movement against the too successful movement of fundamentalist Christians who are trying to influence school policies on teaching biology (read: evolution vs. creation).

The Clergy Letter Project aims at getting as many clergy to undersign a nationwide petition in favour of teaching science in class, notably evolution.

A quote:

We believe that among God’s good gifts are human minds capable of critical thought and that the failure to fully employ this gift is a rejection of the will of our Creator. To argue that God’s loving plan of salvation for humanity precludes the full employment of the God-given faculty of reason is to attempt to limit God, an act of hubris.

If any American clergy read this: go there! (as of May 13, 11.219 clergy have signed the petition)
