Mandatory Bible classes possible in Kentucky schools
A new bill is being considered in Kentucky making Bible reading mandatory for all students in their public schools. US News reports, "Lawmakers are advancing a bill in the state Senate that would require public schools offer an elective social studies course on the Bible, both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Supporters say the course is essential for students understanding the formation of Western culture and history."
Earlier this year, the Governor of Kentucky declared that 2017 was the year of the Bible in Kentucky and apparently is moving forward with his commitment.
Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin made a proclamation earlier this year quoting Abraham Lincoln's love of the Bible and quoted him as saying, 'The Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man'.
