Senate panel approves Bible literacy bill : Bluegrass Politics
So the Kentucky senate has passed a bill that would introduce an elective bible class in public schools. Now, as I've said before, a comparative religion class or something is okay by me (and the ACLU). But as expressly stated by the bill's sponsors, this is to bring the bible back in to schools to avoid school shootings. One of the senators who voted to pass the bill even entered a vote of "amen". Another said that "preaching" may help the public schools. So while the bill on its face may be completely legit, the clear intention is to provide teachers with an avenue to preach in class as said by the very senators voting for the bill.
