Telling a “cdesign proponentist” that they cannot teach their particularly peculiar religious beliefs in public school is not “silencing” them, unless you feel they have a right to have their religious views taught in public school.

Do you think any religious group has the “right” to teach their beliefs in public school? Which ones, and based upon what criteria?

Do you think any secular group has the "right" to teach their beliefs in public school? Which ones, and based upon what criteria?

It's not possible to create and present a values-free education. Which set of values do you advocate be taught in the public schools?

There's only one reasonable conclusion one can make with respect to "public" schools. It's always a bit of a kick watching the contortions some people on both sides of this issue put themselves through avoiding that conclusion (assuming there are only two sides).

Notice when a cultist fails at one argument, they just pull out another long failed argument?

In this case, allmendream failed in making the case creationists should be silenced, then he pulls out the long ago destroyed “teaching their religion” in schools.

Later, if someone dares question his cult, he’ll squeal some “anti-science” nonsense again.
