Evolution banned in Missouri

A Missouri high school banned the school's marching band from wearing T-shirts that depict brass instruments evolving into one another.

The "Brass Evolutions" shirt was based on the ascent-of-man image and religious conservatives were offended. I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP.

"If the shirts had said 'Brass Resurrections' and had a picture of Jesus on the cross we would have done the same thing," said a school official.

So, let me get this straight. A SCHOOL banned the expression of a scientific idea (evolution) because it conflicts with unproven beliefs of ignorant fundamentalists?
