Local reactions to Kitzmiller decision
Some reactions were predictable. See, for example, Max Mann of Dover Township:
Who won? The school teachers, the York Daily Record and the ACLU. Who lost? Morality. What's next? Whatever the liberals decide. Locally? God forgive the people and the pathetic Mike Argento. The nation? Thank God for the state of Kansas which voted to support it.
and Mike James of Dover:
I think the decision is wonderful. The old school board should be educated on the separation of church and state. The bill of $1 million should be mailed to each one on the board and they should pay the fee that we are going to have to pay because of their stupidity.
Some were harsh, such as John N. Fishel of Dallastown:
It is revealing that those who advocate the simple-minded gobbledygook known as intelligent design are by and large themselves not very intelligent, including the most notable example, the missing link who is now the occupant of the White House.
My favorite is Linda Shaffer, who babbled so incomprehensibly that I can only shake my head and grieve for the school where she received her "education" (using that term loosely):
I don't understand how he can use the (constitutional) separation of the state and religion when that was a letter by Jefferson. That is not found in our Constitution. I don't understand why everybody isn't standing up and saying, 'You can't use that, because there is no separation of church and state in the Constitution.' I'm baffled.
