The Red State Menace: Bible Study

Which (obviously red) state just passed a bill to put elective Bible courses in ALL of the state’s public high schools so that students can learn “the history recorded by the Old and New Testaments”? If this bill is signed into law by the governor — which is likely — this state will become the first in the nation to put Bible courses in all of its high public schools.

A) Kansas
B) Texas
C) Georgia
D) Florida
E) Utah

C) Georgia. Expect a legal showdown here, as courts have already ruled on several occasions that the Bible cannot be taught as “history.”

But that isn’t stopping like-minded red states including Alabama and Missouri from considering similar Bible study bills of their own.
