GOP state Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, of Cottonwood, Idaho, has introduced a bill that would allow the Bible to be used to teach stuff. A state senate committee has given it preliminary approval.
As I am delving back in and reading the Bible cover to cover, and as I happen to be in early Deuteronomy, I can say: Huzzah! Divide the cloven foot from the non-cloven. Separate the whites from the colors! And be sure to tip the Amalekites!
Nuxoll’s concern is that teachers are a-skeered to use the Bible in class. Her bill is strictly to let them know it’s OK. The bill said the Bible can be used as a reference for:
literature, comparative religion, English and foreign languages, United States and world history, comparative government, law, philosophy, ethics, astronomy, biology, geology, world geography, archaeology, music, sociology and other topics of study.
They left out P.E. Here’s Sen. Nuxoll’s stand on all The Issues.
And thanks, Cynical, for the link.
P.E. would come under “other” I think.
I will see your Idaho and raise you a South Dakota.
