Elective Bible classes in public high school. This could be a good thing.

 

Article - First Amendment column: Lawmakers re-ignite religion scho...

Emphasis on “could”. Actually reading the bible… page by page – could be very effective in the de-conversion process. Ok evangelicals… we will allow the Bible to be taught in public schools, but we (the secular) get to teach it. Of Course we will be objective and neutral as the law dictates. Being the good teachers we are- we will also be honest. Yes we will show there is no evidence of the garden of eve, the great flood, or the Jews exodus out of Egypt. We will discuss what some may perceive as brutal atrocities in the name of God. Let’s teach what the Bible says about how we should treat each other (Leviticus … yikes!).

Yep. I think this could be a golden opportunity for the secular movement. The Christians want to teach the bible on taxpayer dime… Great. Let’s teach it then. And once these bills pass and become law (they won’t, their unconstitutional), how are you going to prevent “Teach the Koran bill”. Or “The Book of Mormon Bill”. Be careful what you ask for Xians… you might just get it.

I had a great class in High School called The Bible as Literature - it was the first time I had ever seen the Bible read as a 'regular' book.  They pointed out what the belief was and what the Bible actually said; it was quite enlightening actually.  However, the class was cancelled after only one semester.........LOL  Guess it was considered dangerous to faith!
