The last line of this news report is quite important. Wait for it or jump ahead to it.
Now, let it be known that the vast majority of Christians today have no problem with the evolutionary theory or with climate change. Of course, I'm bold saying that and might be accused of using a broad brush here (something that annoys me when done to me) but I believe I am correct. There are many Christian scientists, including archaeologists, paleontologists, etc. who have no problem with science and their faith. The reason for this is they do not take a literal interpretation of Genesis 1 and 2 (as one theologian I know states, these chapters are too theologically important to be literally true). In fact, if you dig deep into your religious history you'll find none of the major religious theologians did until the rise of fundamentalism. Hard to believe this governor and others are willing to pass such laws to pander to a noisy minority of the religious community. Let governors and legislators inclined to pass such bills know you don't want your children's time in class wasted with diatribes from a small minority of the population supported in a spurious attempt to engaging in critical thinking.
