New S.D. Law Allows Schools To Use Bible As Academic Tool

South Dakota lawmakers who earlier this year urged public schools to provide academic instruction on the Bible may need the patience of Job as they wait for schools to embrace the idea.

With only a few lawmakers questioning whether it could blur the line between government and religion, the Legislature in January passed a non-binding resolution encouraging schools to teach ‚ÄĒ not preach ‚ÄĒ about the Bible so students gain an understanding of its influence on Western civilization‚Äôs art, history and culture.

The members of the Yankton Ministerial Association later voted unanimously to endorse the idea. Associate Pastor Bob Mason of the Kingsway Christian Church said he hopes people in the southeast South Dakota community will ask the Yankton School District to include a Bible course in its curriculum ...

A fairly good secular response by an Anglican to this question of, Legislation of Biblical Proportions: Can We Really Have an 'Academic' Study of the Bible in Public Schools?. I understand that one popular outfit which is suppose to put out academic material for Bible study, has a question on the their tests, "How many books are there in the Bible?" The only way you'll get the answer correct is to answer "66" However for the Jew there are only 24 and the Catholic 73!

If you want to give a kid a religious education do it the homeschool way, e.g., Homeschool Nebraska as I pointed out the wee hours this morning on another thread.
