x^n facepalm worthy: Texas introduces bill that would protect creationist science educators

From the bill (pdf):

Sec.A51.979.
PROHIBITION OF DISCRIMINATION BASED ON RESEARCH RELATED TO INTELLIGENT DESIGN. An institution of higher education may not discriminate against or penalize in any manner, especially with regard to employment or academic support, a faculty member or student based on the faculty member ’s or student ’s conduct of research relating to the theory of intelligent design or other alternate theories of the origination and development of organisms.
How progressive – maybe Texas will next introduce a bill to prevent workplace discrimination based on sex and gender.

    This could actually work out well: I can’t wait to see this challenged in court, and the intelligent design “researchers” have to justify their research in court as being equally rigorous as real science in order to prove discrimination.
