Relativism run amok

When it comes to a host of topics, from abortion to child rearing, the crapweasels believe there is one and only one "correct" viewpoint. Anything else stinks of "relativism," one of the most popular boogeymen used by the right wing.

Is every family equally valid? Is every sexual orientation equally valid? Every religion? No, scream the crapweasels. NO!

So it's funny that when it comes to evolution and creationism, suddenly teachers have the "responsibility to let students know about all sides of the 'debate'." Suddenly, relativism is their bestest friend.

Americablog says it well.

UPDATE: On Tuesday night, Bill O'Reilly said that teaching kids science in science class is "fascism." Dean Esmay, call your office. (Hat tip: Rude Pundit)
