Indiana creationism bill on hold

The speaker of the Indiana house has put a bill that would allow creationism to be taught alongside evolution on hold, at least for now.

Speaker Brian Bosma used a procedural move to shelve the bill over concerns about changes made by the Senate. The changes make it unclear exactly what would be taught in the classrooms.

“’According to McCann, supporters want to discuss the issue and come up with legislation next year that has a proven track record in other states. ‘We want to do something that, at the end of the day when it becomes law, it will be actually upheld in the courts,’ he tells OneNewsNow, ‘and we could actually see that implemented and happen in the public schools.’”

The bill currently would allow origin of life theories from multiple religions to be taught in the public schools.
