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.

Sometimes I think it's not impolitic to merely say .. Mr. Kemple, shut the fuck up and sit down. Or sit down and shut the fuck up.

There's your free speech.

Showgirls will be closing within days.

Public Access TV no longer carries any pornography.

The State School Board recognized the science standards are flawed and tried to fix them.

It's press like yours that makes our work successful.

Thank you!
Terry Kemple

Terry (head in the sand) Kemple has no talent or skills beyond thumping his Bible and spewing his venom as a representative of the ultra right wing. The NRA, right to lifers, big oil, and most recently the so called "health care industry" ensure his continued financial success thru surrogates, as long as he continues to act as their spokes person. Most recently he is thumping the health care drum EXACTLY as described in Wendall Potter, former Cigna communications director, where it is outlined how to kill any health care reform as was done in the Clinton attempts at reform. Imagine where we might be if any kind of health care reform had been enacted over 20 years ago!!!!!!!! Maybe that is what Kemple and his cronies are afraid of: a healthy, vibrant community, unafraid of loosing their coverage.
