How 19-year-old activist Zack Kopplin is making life hell for Louisiana’s creationists
For Zack Kopplin, it all started back in 2008 with the passing of the Louisiana Science Education Act. The bill made it considerably easier for teachers to introduce creationist textbooks into the classroom. Outraged, he wrote a research paper about it for a high school English class. Nearly five years later, the 19-year-old Kopplin has become one of the fiercest — and most feared — advocates for education reform in Louisiana. We recently spoke to him to learn more about how he's making a difference.

Oh, those wacky Christians...

I've been called a neo-evangelist, accused of cupidity, and all sorts of shit by Christian shit stains.
