The European Centre for Law and Justice (a sister-organization to the American Center for Law and Justice) opposed a law that (among other things) called the teaching of intelligent design “a threat to human rights.”

The Council of Europe decided that the proposed legislation — to abolish the teaching of one theory in favor of another — was unreasonable and would, in the words of the ACLJ, “restrict a student’s ability to examine competing points of view … violating freedom of expression and hampering the free exercise of religion.”
