Intelligent Design: Evolution of the Nut

There are some powerful nuts evolving out of the fight on "Intelligent Design" to the south.  One story covered by Canada’s CBC Television highlights a comment by the U.S.’s Christian Coalition leader, Pat Robertson – who’s made some remarks of dubious moral character in the past.  The one in this story that caught my ear was in defense of teaching the doctrine of Intelligent Design in the classroom and trying to coerce the God-fearing to support the idea by saying "If there is a natural disaster in your area, don’t turn to God [if you vote against intelligent design in the classroom] – you just rejected Him from your city."
 
And the left-leaning CBC isn’t immune from a degree of bias itself either; at one point in the story – it characterizes intelligent design as "anti-evolutionism", which isn’t in my view entirely accurate and serves to misrepresent the theory.
Why is eveyone trying to tell us what to believe on this subject as if the world around were somehow incapable of making up its own mind?  The "Christian Coalition" doesn’t do itself taking an approach reminiscent of the Spanish Inquisition to win support….
