Dannemeyer filed a "Community }Life" constitutional amendment in the Hourse of Representatives on }Jun 15, 1989. }Among the }decisions which have "effectuated this moral and ethical decline" is }the 1987 Edwards vs Aguillard creationist decision, which "held that }the theory of devine creation of the earth cound not be taught in }public schools on equal footing with the theory of evolution." } }The Community Life Amendment reads as follows: } }SECTION 2 For the purpose of section 1, the term "teachof }Judeo-Christian ethic" shall include the Ten Commandments, and the }creation of the earth as accepted in Judeo-Christian tradition. }The amendment has 34 co-sponsors, and will go first to the Judiciary }Committee's Subcommittee on Constitutional and Civil Rights. If it }is passed in the House and Senate, it will go to the States for }ratification, requiring 34 state legislatures to approve it. Call (301)224-3121 (U.S. House of Representatives) and voice your complaints.
