credible, opposing views

out of control (a term in heavy rotation these days).

condoms & al gore have something in common... not belonging in a classroom. that is according to federal way parent, frosty hardison, whose child was shown al gore's "an inconvenient truth" in their classroom. after an email was sent to the school board, restrictions were made that required a "credible, legitimate opposing view will be presented" alongside the film.

freedom of speech or science? global warming as fact or a controversial mumbo jumbo? the basics of the position taken in the film are backed by the american meteorological society, the american geophysical union, the american association for the advancement of science and the national academy of sciences.

from the seattle p.i., "condoms don't belong in school, and neither does al gore. he's not a schoolteacher," said frosty hardison, a parent of seven who also said that he believes the earth is 14,000 years old. "the information that's being presented is a very cockeyed view of what the truth is. ... The bible says that in the end times everything will burn up, but that perspective isn't in the dvd."
