Welcome to Alabama

Panda's Thumb reports Alabama Rejects Textbooks Containing Evolution. From the AP article:
The book “Geologic Time” (Perfection Learning Company) was rejected for an illustrated diagram that shows humans evolving from apes. Similarly, “Reptiles” (Heinemann-Raintree Classroom), incorporates two pages on reptiles evolving from amphibians. “Orangutan” (Heinemann-Raintree Classroom) discusses natural selection — a key part of the evolutionary theory.
Which side is censoring ideas?
