Example text

In Epperson v. Arkansas,48 the Supreme Court considered the constitutionality of an Arkansas law that made it illegal for a public school teacher "to teach the theory or doc­ trine that mankind ascended or descended from a lower order of animals," that is, the theory of evolution. The case was brought by a biology teacher who was placed in an untenable position when her school district adopted a biology textbook containing a chapter on evolution. Thus, she was both required to and prohibited from teaching the theory.

The test prohibits any action of govern­ ment that serves either to advance or to inhibit one religion compared to another or religion in general. Applying the framework to the facts of the Schempp case, the Court concluded that government-sponsored prayers and readings from holy books, even if arguably nonde­ nominational, had both the purpose and primary effect of advancing religion in gen­ eral. Even when participation was voluntary, the Court recognized that state sponsorship of religious exercises signals approval and, in the context of the public school, tends to encourage conformity to prevailing practice and belief.

The Court summarized its conclusion as follows: [T]he Purpose of the Creationism Act was to restructure the science curriculum to con­ form with a particular religious viewpoint. Out of many possible science subjects taught in the public schools, the legislature chose to affect the teaching of the one scientific the­ ory that historically has been opposed by certain religious sects. Disappointed with the outcome of Edwards, a school board in Louisiana adopted a policy that required its teachers to read the following "disclaimer" every time evolu­ tion was mentioned in one of its classrooms: RELIGIOUS AND MORAL OBJECTIONS TO COURSE CONTENT AND MATERIALS 29 It is hereby recognized by the Tangipahoa Board of Education that the lesson to be pre­ sented, regarding the origin of life and matter, is known as the Scientific Theory of Evolu­ tion and should be presented to inform students of the scientific concept and is not intended to influence or dissuade the Biblical version of Creation or any other concept.
