Good Grief, Kentucky, WTF?
Kentucky's Senate Education Committee just gave their seal of approval for the Bible to be taught in public schools.
For some reason, this Bible class will be treated as social studies course. I wonder if they will teach some the "interesting" beliefs in the scriptures.
Now, I don't know why they did this. I hope they are not thinking the Bible will change lives... Oh, well, someone does:
"We took the Bible out of our schools, but we put nothing back," Carroll said. "When we took the Bible out of the schools, we also unfortunately took out that portion of the Bible which relates to life skills, which relates to value systems. And so our students these days do not have the full opportunity, in my judgment, to be taught those life skills and value judgments that keep them out of our penitentiaries ..."That's from Sen. Julian Carroll (above), who believes this is the best thing for the kids. No sweetie, the best things are being honest and truthful about the world, without the bullsh** sweetener. That's the moral thing to do.
