‘WHITEHOUSE, TX (KLTV) – The school year is almost here, and if literature of the Bible is not already offered in your child’s school, it will be this fall.’
‘Books are a common sight in classrooms around the nation, but the Bible is one book that is not. Come this fall, a Texas law says all public schools must offer information relating to the Bible in their curriculum.’
The law was actually passed in 2007 but first goes into effect for the 2009-2010 school year. Here you can find a copy of it to read over yourself. Take special notice of the part that lays out the required curriculum:
Of course they have the obligatory ‘a course offered under this law shall not endorse, favor, or promote, or disfavor or show hostility toward any particular religion or nonreligious faith or religious perspective.’ But I imagine Texas schools wont be requiring classes on the Talmud, Q’uran, Tao Te Ching, LaVey’s Satanic Bible, Dianetics, Eastern Orthodox Bible, Wicca, or Militant Atheist texts any time soon.
