In one of the dumbest things I’ve possibly ever read, there’s apparently a conservative group in Kansas that’s suing to remove science from the classroom on the grounds that it violates separation of church and state.

What kind of asinine reasoning is behind this push? Well, it’s quite simple—and completely idiotic. This group claims that evolution is a religion and teaching it violates the separation of church and state.

Yes, you’ve read that correctly. A religious group is claiming that evolution is a religion and therefore it shouldn’t be taught in schools.

According to the AP:

Citizens for Objective Public Education (COPE) claims that public schools “promote a ‘non-theistic religious worldview’ by allowing only ‘materialistic’ or ‘atheistic’ explanations to scientific questions.” The group argues that by teaching evolution “the state would be ‘indoctrinating’ impressionable students in violation of the First Amendment.”​
And apparently they’re dead serious.

Why is the "theory of evolution" equal to "science" in this article? Science is much more then biology or evolution.
