Missouri House Passes Bill Allowing Public Schools to Teach Bible Courses

The Missouri House this week passed a bill that would allow public schools in the state to teach elective social studies courses on the Bible.

The bill, sponsored by state Representative Ben Baker was passed by the Republican-led House with a 95-52 vote on Monday, according to The Associated Press, and awaits passage by the Senate.

The bill would allow Missouri public schools to offer Bible classes to their students as an elective, although institutions cannot make the courses mandatory. It also requires state education officials to set clear guidelines and standards if they chose to offer classes on the Old and New Testament.
----snip---

Missouri is just one of several U.S. states where lawmakers have proposed to allow Bible courses in public schools. President Donald Trump tweeted his support of the bills in January, writing: “Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!”

If this trend continues the Supreme Court will nullify it.
The separation of church and state is the LAW of the land

It amazes me you foreigners even bother to post this stuff when you are so ignorant of these things. This will stand in the Supreme court without question, only the lefty loons would assume it wouldn't because they are brainwashed to believe it means something that it doesn't. Time to get out of you-tube and into factoids..

"Separation of church and state" is paraphrased from Thomas Jefferson and used by others in expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution which reads: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." The phrase "separation between church & state" is generally traced to a January 1, 1802, letter by Thomas Jefferson,

Rather than just making an unfounded statement.
Are you able to provide the Document where that Law is written?

Hello Jim, good to see you.
Do you ever notice how the liberals when they post, they post in a threatening manner like we are to fear something, we are to be warned of the big bad wolf coming for us.

That comes from the fact that they are even ignorant that for most of the life of this country the truth is , even though republicans get all the blame, rarely have they even been in charge, even the raare few times they have been a majority, they have bent over backwards to work with the dems, they did in fact fear the media and retribution, the fact is the dems have created most of the havoc in this country and now, only now conservative republicans are coming into the game for the first time in history.

Fact, when George Bush H W jr won president, and had both congress's, houses and senate for that short two years, that was the first time in forty years. but yet, these liberals and the democrats, and the media spew its the republicans fault all day long. the propaganda went unchecked for generations.. this clown is just a victim of that!

Dan

Amen. Socialists have no true agenda, they just want power and social control. They will promise whatever they think will help them get power, but they have seldom delivered what they promise.

Offering religious studies does not violate the establishment clause.
