Liberals Dismayed to Have THIS Controversial Book Taught in Kentucky Classrooms
Liberals have been fighting for decades to remove any remnant of Biblical teachings from public school classrooms. Not only have they been adamant about getting the Bible itself out of the school system, but anything even semi-related, including prayer, Christmas trees, and the words “under God” that lie at the heart of the Pledge of Allegiance. None of that, they say. Separation of Church and State, they say. And of course, they have nothing against Islam or Hinduism or any other form of faith; this is a war on Christianity exclusively. An attempt to divide America from its own holy traditions so that room can be made for a new form of faith: Liberalism in all of its tentacled disgrace.
But occasionally – and maybe it’s an illusion, but it seems like we see these stories more often since Trump took office than before – the good guys win one.
In Kentucky, Governor Matt Bevin just signed a new “Bible Literacy Bill” into law that will allow the Christian holy book back into public schools. No, there will not be a preacher on hand to evangelize the misguided, but students will at least be permitted to take Bible study courses that teach them – in a non-preachy way – about the book’s importance in the pantheon of history and literature. And considering that public school students have been learning about the Islamic Quran in this way for years, it is only proper that they be given the same instruction about a book that means much, MUCH more to the United States.
The original bill was co-sponsored by Rep. D.J. Johnson of the Kentucky House of Representatives. In an interview with the Louisville Courier-Journal, the Republican said the Bible’s importance to the fabric of the U.S. could not be ignored.
“Whether you believe that it’s the word of God or you think it’s complete fiction, you can’t deny the impact it’s had on our culture,” Johnson said.
Gov. Bevin, upon signing the bill, found it ridiculous that anyone would oppose such a law.
“The idea that we would not want this to be an option for people in school, that would be crazy,” Bevin said. “I don’t know why every state would not embrace this, why we as a nation would not embrace this.”
Crazy is just about the right word for it. But then, the left has been on a mission to tear down every aspect of American history, and Christianity is a huge part of that. It’s good to see that at least some states are finally finding ways to push us back to sanity.
