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.

[quote]His efforts, needless to say, have not gone unnoticed — particularly by his opponents. He's been called the Anti-Christ, a stooge of "godless liberal college professors," and was even accused of causing Hurricane Katrina.

Oh, those wacky Christians...

What does it say about Louisiana when a 19 year old is the most adult person in the State?

I'm pretty open about the general idiocy of Christianity on YouTube and other sites.

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