United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia : Man Sues Educators for Teaching Daughter ‘Religion’ of Evolution

SmithJEFFERSON COUNTY, Va. — A man in West Virginia has filed a lawsuit against local, state and federal education officials after his daughter was taught about evolution in school, which he refers to as “the propagation of religious faith.”
According to the complaint, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia, Kenneth Smith states that he believes it is damaging for his daughter to be taught evolution.
“Their actions during the 2014-2015 school year affects my child’s future directly through the state grading system to enter college and the ability to earn economic security and a good job in her chosen veterinarian medical field of work, by being taught a faith (evolutionary ideology) that just doesn’t exist and has no math to back it,” he wrote.
Smith states that the teaching presents a violation of the Establishment Clause to the United States Constitution and calls upon the federal court to examine any infringements of the First and Fourteenth Amendments.
