Phillip Johnson Disputes Neutrality Doctrine

Discovery Institute, Liberty University Law Review, August 9, 2010 by Casey Luskin

University of California (UC) Berkeley law professor Phillip Johnson observes: Whether schools that avoid the topic of religion altogether are thereby “neutral” towards religion is debatable. For one thing, the schools have to teach subjects—biology in particular—which touch directly upon matters of religious controversy. A textbook that teaches that the human species evolved gradually over millions of years from simple life forms is anything but neutral from the viewpoint of Biblical literalists.
