Anyone with half a brain could tell you that when ID proponents claim there is no religious element to intelligent design, they are lying through their teeth. Apparently, that is not the only lie ID proponents told in the recent Dover Case:
A federal prosecutor said testimony in the Dover Area School District’s intelligent design case is under review to determine if perjury charges should be pursued.
U.S. Middle District Attorney Thomas A. Marino said yesterday that decision will take time because there is “a lot of reading to do” to determine if the statements rise to the level of a crime.
“I want to question a couple of people who were present,” he said. They will not include Judge John E. Jones III, who presided over the case, he said.
Marino’s comments came a day after Jones struck down the school district’s policy of telling ninth-grade biology students Darwin’s theory of evolution is not fact and intelligent design is an alternative explanation of the origin of life.
In his opinion, Jones accused some of those who testified during the six-week trial in Harrisburg of lying, singling out former board members Alan Bonsell and William Buckingham, the leading proponents of the policy.
Both men testified during the trial, which ended last month, and both gave sworn statements in depositions on Jan. 3. During the trial, Jones and lawyers for parents opposed to the policy confronted the men about the discrepancies and evasiveness in their answers to questions about their motivations and efforts to raise money for a pro-intelligent design textbook, “Of Pandas and People.”
As I am petty, vindictive, and shallow, I can not tell you how much I would enjoy seeing perjury charges filed against these charlatans. Maybe if that happens, they can, without irony, get the Thomas More Law Center to come to their legal aid once again. Question is- will the Thomas More Law center want to defend someone who willfully breaks the 9th Commandment?

LMAO. Commandment, not amendment. What a jackass I am.
