The great state of Texas may make the Bible a textbook:
The bill's author, Rep. Warren Chisum, R-Pampa, said learning about the Bible is necessary to understanding America and Western culture.
"We need for people to know why we are the sort of country we are," said Chisum, who teaches Sunday school at a Baptist church. "We ought to know where we come from and why we do what we do."
The bill instructs teachers to teach the Bible from a secular point of view, Chisum said. No text other than the Bible would be required, according to the bill. School districts and students could chose which version to use, and teachers would not need special training, Chisum said.
Bible classes would be offered in the next school year if the bill becomes law.
Bills like this are worth it just for the fun of watching the secularists go ballistic.
