"Intelligent Design" and kid gloves: I don't think so.
If you follow the pseudo-scientific rubbish that is ID these days, you've probably noticed the new ID wanker talking point: "We're absolutely not proposing to teach ID in science class. All we want to do is teach the weaknesses and problems of evolution."
Here, let me translate that for you: "We want the freedom to introduce every nonsensical, idiotic, dishonest misrepresentation of biological evolution we can lay our sleazy hands on, while making sure that ID is totally out of bounds for any criticism whatsoever."
There. Now is it starting to make more sense?
