The Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin proudly and publicly signed a bill allowing the Bible to be taught in public schools.
One of the Representatives, Rep. D.J. Johnson (R-Owensboro) said:
“It really did set the foundation that our founding fathers used to develop documents like the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights. All of those came from principles from the Bible.”
For the last time, Republicans, we are not a Christian nation!
The bill gives schools an option of developing a Bible literacy class as part of their Social Studies curriculum. The course would be elective; however, this is a slippery slope they are headed down.
Bevin said during the signing:
“The idea that we would not want this to be an option for people in school, that would be crazy. I don’t know why every state would not embrace this, why we as a nation would not embrace this.”
The reason is this little thing called the Constitution, Governor Bevin.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Advocacy Director Kate Miller said:
“We want to make sure that teachers can teach and make sure that they don’t go in to preach.”
Governor Bevin showed just how out of touch he is with non-Christians when he said:
“You could be an atheist, and you would appreciate there’s a lot of wisdom in the Bible.”
No, we don’t. Most of us become atheists by reading the contradictory and awful things in the Bible.
The bill doesn’t include any other religious texts. Public money should not be going toward religious teaching in schools. Why is this so hard for Republicans to get.
