Kentucky Pushes The Bible
But who has the True Faith?

  • The "small government" GOP run Kentucky legislature just can't wait to spend tax dollars to teach the Bible.
  • The fact that Christians have been fighting with each other since day one over which is the True Faith does not enter the tiny minds of the politicians.
  • Let's not forget all the non-Christians in the state. Their tax dollars would be used to promote one religion to the exclusion of all other religions.  This is not a "Religions of the World" class, but a Bible class.

(CNS News)  -  Last Friday, a Kentucky bill signed by Republican Gov. Matt Bevin allowing public schools to offer elective classes teaching the Bible went into effect.
“The idea that we would not want [a Biblical literacy course] to be an option for people in school, that would be crazy,” said Gov. Bevin at the signing ceremony on June 27. “I don’t know why every state would not embrace this, why we as a nation would not embrace this.”
House Bill 128, signed by the governor in the state’s Capitol Rotunda, allows “local school boards the option of developing a Bible literacy class as part of their social studies curriculum,” according to Louisville-based WRDB.
The bill, which had 12 Republican sponsors, passed the Kentucky State House in February with an 80-14 vote in its favor.
“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,” Kentucky Rep. D.J. Johnson told WRDB. “All of those came from principles from the Bible.”
The new law requires Kentucky’s board of education to regulate and establish an elective Bible course, covering the Old and New Testaments as well as “Biblical content, characters, poetry, and narratives that are prerequisites to understanding contemporary society and culture.”
However, the ACLU of Kentucky expressed concerns about the state’s new law.
