A program is underway to serve the public through educational efforts concerning a First Amendment right and religious freedom issue. This is to bring a state certified Bible course (elective) into the public high schools nationwide.
The curriculum for the program shows a concern to convey the content of the Bible as compared to literature and history. The program is concerned with education rather than indoctrination of students. The central approach of the class is simply to study the Bible as a foundation document of society, and that approach is altogether appropriate in a comprehensive program of secular education.
The world is watching to see if we will be motivated to impact our culture, to deal with the moral crises in our society, and reclaim our families and children.
Please help us to restore our religious and civil liberties in this nation.

This just scares the shit out of me. Although, I know this is supposed to be taught in an historical context I feel it is just a prelude to Intelligent Design or Creationism. I don't care if the course is an elective or not there are already many text books and history classes that teach religion (not just the Christian one) in an historical context. My daughters current world history class teaches religion in an appropriate historical manner without the need for a "bible class".
