Just say no

to Creationism, that is. Sign this petition to thank two Texas politicians for standing up to the creationists.

It takes courage for a politician in Texas to speak out against religious fundamentalism. Texas state Senator Rodney Ellis and Representative Patrick Rose deserve the thanks of all Americans - or those who value real science, anyway - for showing that courage.
Whether you're a Texan or not, if you want creationism out of high school science textbooks - and evolution in them - please take a moment to thank Sen. Ellis and Rep. Rose for fighting the Discovery Institute/creationist-dominated Texas State Board of Education (SBOE).

Please sign. It will also be cc'd to your own state and federal representatives...
