December of 2005. At the end of an extremely unorthodox, to use an euphemism, judicial process, John Jones the 3rd, a judge from Pennsylvania ruled intelligent design was religion and, as a result, teachers and students could not utter these two words in public schools.
FOX News pundits went instantaneously into attack mode, and so did radical, ultra-religious Republican activists depicting Jones as being a reincarnation of the biblical character Judas. On the other hand, according to Wikipedia, in the eyes of liberals and Atheists dedicated to keeping religion out of the governing of the country and of the education system, the supposedly conservative judge appointed by the very religious George W. Bush became now a national hero. As it will be revealed in the book, though, a hero he was not, and the trial was a sham.
