Arkansas OK’s bill to make Bible study an elective course
Apparently legislators in Arkansas are convinced the ills of society can be fixed if they ensure students are brainwashed into Christianity. In order to do so, they’ve passed a Bill that would lay out “guidelines” for public schools who want to offer elective classes on the Bible.
Republican Rep. Denny Altes called the Bible the most accurate history book and says students could learn about its influence on literature, culture and politics in a nonreligious setting.
It’s highly doubtful these electives will be critical of the Bible, and the fact that Denny-boy thinks this book of mythology is the most accurate history book indicates he’s never actually bothered to study any other texts. He’s seeing the world through his “faith goggles”, and like their beer counterpart, they severely affect judgement.
The Bill now heads for the House to be voted on, and it’s my hope that people there have their heads screwed on right. This kind of indoctrination has no place in public schools. I’m not too hopeful for any sanity from equally moronic politicians, but a man can hope, can’t he?
