Reasons for Bible in Schools debunked

April 12, 2016 Dave 0

Whenever the topic of Bible in Schools comes up on facebook, there’s a lot of supporters who have opinions about why bible classes are important and how the world will end if it’s taken out because our kids will turn to the dark side and the gates of hell will open. But do any of their reasons hold water?

It’s pretty shocking to me that the school is so paranoid about this blowing up in their faces that they’re prepared to try and gag me rather than deal with the issue.
