It's always interesting to see how two sides see the same event. I caught a 700 Club broadcast yesterday on the Kentucky State Board of Education's actions. According to them, the only thing was changed was the term "Evolution" to "Change over Time", and they reported this as an attempt by Kentucky to hide their evolutionary teachings through a name change. So, both sides see this as an action against their position. Interesting.
