The Evolution of Terry Kemple
The fact that Florida educators are scared to use the word evolutions shows how a few organized members of the Christian Right have dominated the debate. Educators are attempted to please people that hate public education and want to force Christian ideology. Nevermind how poorly the state's school system is ranked.
JACKSONVILLE -- Florida public school educators are considering revisions in state science standards that would substitute the word evolution for ''biological changes over time,'' a subject sure to cause intense debate during the coming six weeks.
It gets better. Noted anti-titty bar crusader Terry Kemple weighs in.
But Terry Kemple of Tampa Bay, president and founder of the Community Issues Council, disagreed.
''This isn't about whether or not our children should be taught that evolution is a fact. The issue goes to whether our schools are places of learning or indoctrination centers,'' he said.
''The science standard is a set of beliefs -- unproven,'' Kemple said. ``Leave the science standards as they are, so our children are taught to think.''
Kemple is a longtime Christian activist and founder of the Community Issues Council, whom is attempting to indoctrinate people to his evangelical thinking and believes in a God that can not be scientificly proven.
Kemple often receives media attention, but is considered a joke in Tampa. Kemple held a press conference to spout his views against gay marriage. No one attended. Kemple filed an appeal to keep a Valrico bikini bar from opening. Through a bizarre set of matters, Kemple's appeal helped open the bikini bar. Just ask the establishment's attorney Luke Lirot.
“Had Mr. Kemple not filed his appeal, the true flaws would have been more difficult to prove. In essence he assisted us.”
Kemple says that attempting to shut down adult businesses "was a training God had given me." That unscientific theory is "unproven" by his track record.
Side note: Kemple is the only employee of Community Issues Council.
