As suggested in a previous post here, there was some speculation that Louisiana’s Governor Bobby Jindal might veto the new anti-science education law since, having studied Biology at Brown University, he could be expected to know the difference between what is, and what is not, the natural science that is practiced, taught, and studied as the science of Biology.
Now that he has signed the law, another aspect of this character is receiving renewed attention. It seems that this Governor believes in exorcism — not only believes, in fact, but has written a published article about his own participation in an exorcism.
Here’s an excerpt:
New Oxford Review
Well, it looks like they’ll be onto purging the demon Science now from the public school classrooms of Louisiana!
