Great Victory For Christians! Kentucky governor signs bill permitting public schools to teach official Bible courses

Great victory for Christians!

If they can teach the Koran, we can surely teach the Bible!

The bill permitting Bible study was signed into law Tuesday by Gov. Matt Bevin, and the event began appropriately enough with a prayer, according to Louisville station WDRB.

“The idea that we would not want this to be an option for people in school, that would be crazy,” Bevin told the crowd at the signing ceremony. “I don’t know why every state would not embrace this, why we as a nation would not embrace this.”

The new law has already raised the hackles of Kentucky’s chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.

“A Bible literacy bill that, on its face, may not appear to be unconstitutional, could in fact become unconstitutional in its implementation,” ACLU Advocacy Director Kate Miller told WDRB.

“We want to make sure that teachers can teach and make sure that they don’t go in to preach,” Miller said.
