A professor whose planned course on creationism and intelligent design was canceled after he sent e-mails deriding Christian conservatives was hospitalized Monday after what appeared to be a roadside beating.Way to beat the infidel, boys. If a good ass-kicking doesn't get the message of Jesus Christ across, I don't know what will. Maybe a giant cross, lit on fire and stuck in his front yard? That would demonstrate the shining light and warm embrace of true Christianity for sure!
University of Kansas religious studies professor Paul Mirecki said that the two men who beat him made references to the class that was to be offered for the first time this spring.
Originally called "Special Topics in Religion: Intelligent Design, Creationism and other Religious Mythologies," the course was canceled last week at Mirecki's request.
The class was added after the Kansas State Board of Education decided to include more criticism of evolution in science standards for elementary and secondary students.
"I didn't know them," Mirecki said of his assailants, "but I'm sure they knew me."
Sheesh. I do love the irony here -- the opponents of evolution have once again proven themselves to be the least evolved people in the country.
