Pro-Intelligent Design Group Wins First Amendment Suit

Darwin's DilemmaEarly last year, I wrote a brief post about a suit brought against the California Science Center for unlawful discrimination against a pro-Intelligent Design group and the subsequent cover-up of the details behind the censorship. (If you don’t want to read the articles I link to in the original post, you can get the important points by reading my response to the commenter in the Comments section.)

Today, it was announced that the California Science Center (CSC) has agreed to pay $110,000 to settle the suit brought against it by American Freedom Alliance (AFA). The CSC will also allow the AFA to use its facilities to show the pro-ID film (“Darwin’s Dilemma“) that was the focus of the suit.

“This is the first free speech case for the ID movement, and its first victory in that field,” said William J. Becker, Jr., primary attorney for the AFA in the case. “This settlement represents an acknowledgement that a state-owned science institution sought to censor an event solely because it related to ID. It’s a vindication for ID, and First Amendment guarantees of free speech.”

The law is upheld and justice prevails. While Darwinian dogmatists sulk in the corner, freedom-loving people all over rejoice.
