The Mississippi Senate opens its 1982 session by voting 48-4 to pass a bill requiring public schools to teach creation science if they also teach about evolution.

Senator Emerson Stringer, the bill's chief sponsor, dismisses the ruling in Arkansas (McClean v. Arkansas) which struck down a similar law. According to Stringer, while some people "desire that certain things not be taught... we need to take the offensive."
