The Arkansas Comic Book Bill

"A bill proposed in 2001 in the Arkansas legislature by Representative Holt would make it illegal for the state or any of its agencies to use state funds to purchase materials that contain false or fraudulent claims. A list of such claims is provided in the text of House Bill 2548 (HB2548).  What makes this so interesting is that much of the text of those examples is either quoted verbatim from anti-evolutionary sources or is a close paraphrase of such materials. The sources include a cartoon booklet published by Jack Chick."

For the full exposť of the creationist sources behind Bill 2548 see:

Arkansas House Bill 2548 is a composite of anti-evolutionary sources

On 23 March 2001 the Arkansas legislature failed to pass House Bill 2548.
