And they approved it unanimously.
This proposal gives schools the option to offer Bible classes as a social studies credit.
Democratic Senator David Boswell, sponsor of the bill, says the Bible lessons would be based up on literature, art, cultural, and social aspects of the Bible, and so the classes would be constitutionally sound.
So, are they teaching history, with the Bible as an alternative resource?
Not really. Another Senator. asshat Julian Carroll, believes that passing the measure is the moral thing to do, saying, "We took the Bible out of our schools, but we put nothing back. When we took the Bible out of the schools, we also unfortunately took out that portion of the Bible which relates to life skills, which relates to value systems. And so our students these days do not have the full opportunity, in my judgment, to be taught those life skills and value judgments that keep them out of our penitentiaries ..."
Senator Carroll? Dipwad? Schools do not teach morality. Parents should teach their children moral lessons; their churches should give them the skills and value judgement they need. Not the public schools.
i don't get it with these wingnuts. They bitch and complain about government intrusion into their lives and then they for more intrusion. Bible study in public schools. Sheesh.
