Evolution and Neutrality

From The New York Times, this story about the Texas Education Agency's director of science, Christine Castillo.

Castillo, it seems, was fired for advertising a talk that would be critical of intelligent design.

She was told that the evolution/creation debate was a "subject on which the agency must remain neutral."

That's a pretty incredible statement. Intelligent design has been pretty well exposed as pseudo-science (really, it has) and there's no reason for a state agency to remain "neutral" when the issue is science vs. pseudo-science.
