Roger, this is really outrageous. You are repeating the RT.com talking 
points without even bothering to acknowledge that some of us have been 
putting them under microscope long before you became a subscriber. Yes, 
some rightwinger proposed this but it was not passed. What if some Tea 
Party legislator proposed legislation to ban the teaching of evolution 
in Kentucky? It does not mean that it was an "act", does it, if it is 
voted down?

In terms of the language question, this is really the best way to 
understand it:
