Georgia Bible School
So when Georgia passed state funding for a class on the Bible as literature, one part of me says, why not? And the other -- the cynical, well-informed part -- knows that these kinds of things are often Trojan horses for evangelicals.
I agree with this sentimenet:
While the bill specifies that the courses must be taught in an “objective and nondevotional” manner, the exclusion of other religious books makes it objectionable, Maggie Garrett, legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia, has said.
If Georgia really wants to teach religion as literature, why not include otehr religions?
