they're hurting our country

Every year, Popular Science compiles a list of "The Worst Jobs in Science." It's always good for a laugh, but it's often predictable. Jobs primarily concerned with urine, semen or feces aren't the best. And in case you didn't know, being a vulcanologist or lab rat can be very dangerous.

This year, however, one of these is not like the other: The Number Three Worst Job in Science, Kansas biology teacher.

But there's something far worse than giving our children a bad science education for misguided religious reasons. Some extremist "Christian" groups are seeking to limit the deployment of a life-saving vaccine. Debate rages on use of cervical cancer vaccine — funny how there's only a debate for people who care more about imposing their religious beliefs on others than saving lives.
