In 1963, the Supreme Court removed official Bible readings from America’s schools. This was a heavily protested decision and people still have mixed feelings today. That could be about the change under President Donald Trump.
The state of Kentucky voted to establish an optional biblical literacy course for its public school students:
“The bill says the purpose of the Bible literacy course would be to teach students about ‘biblical content, characters, poetry and narratives that are prerequisites to understanding contemporary society and culture,’ including literature, art and music.”
Here is what a University of Chicago had to say about it –
“In the United States, practically speaking, the Bible was the only common culture, one that united simple and sophisticated, rich and poor, young and old, and – as the very model for a vision of the order of the whole of things, as well as the key to the rest of Western art, the greatest works of which were in one way or another responsive to the Bible – provided access to the seriousness of books. With its gradual and inevitable disappearance, the very idea of such a total book and the possibility and necessity of world-explanation is disappearing.”
Why are we all so scared of the bible being in schools. This country was based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and is important that students understand how important their faith is.
Donald Trump is starting to make the United States great again. It has been a long time since we have seen a good solid conservative in office and he is doing great things. Our country has finally gotten off it’s free fall that was Barack Obama.
Are you guys excited to see the bible being brought back into schools. For now it may be just one state but that number will soon grow!
