OK Schools Chief Says Schools Will Be Required to Teach the Bible

I wish these Christian nationalists would stop pushing their religion on everyone else. They're the real "groomers"

There is something deeply wrong with this man and I hope it is exposed very soon

Someone should point out to them that teaching religion in school is what the Muslims do.

They need to clarify the separation of church and state at the federal level and sue when that is breached.

That ^^^ is exactly what Louisiana is attempting to destroy. The governor of LA is anxious to get sued, appeal, etc,. until this is forced in front of the rightwingnuts on the SC to make fuckery like this the law of the land

Louisiana and Oklahoma fucking suck.

R4, Republicans believe that that separation is to keep government from dictating to religion not taking religion out of the public’s lives.

I'm not convinced a book that features a talking snake in chapter one qualifies as a historical document.

On a positive note, teaching the *actual* Bible in schools will show students God is silent on abortion (though he killed Onan for, well, [italic]Onanism.[/italic] Go figure (of course I know why, but still hilariously random).

And the Bible is pretty quiet on homosexuality; God has more, EXPLICIT proscriptions against sex outside of marriage, adultery, avarice, hypocrisy, religious insincerity, and contact with lepers.

Fucking LEPERS. More terrifying in God's view than homosexuality.

Teachers who refuse to teach the Bible can now lose their license

Ryan Walters is a complete nut. He’s hoping to get into Trump’s administration, and he’ll leave behind all his messes for Oklahoma to pay for, and clean up. The only reason the legislature hasn’t tried to impeach him is because he’s governor Stitt’s butt boy. (The Republican legislature doesn’t like him, he calls them liberals and simply won’t return calls or even show up).

I meant to add, has about ten lawsuits filed against him and his department, and that’s before his latest shit-stirring. He also has a federal investigation accusing him of mishandling pandemic funds (they were used to buy Xboxes and other crap).

R7 but this is an example of dictating religion and only one religion at that.

[quote] MAGA pastor Jackson Lahmeyer prays over Oklahoma school superintendent Ryan Walters and heaps praise upon him for "bringing [God] back into the public schools, saying 'Jesus, you are welcome in the classroom in the state of Oklahoma.'"

I'd be happy to have the Bible taught in schools if I were allowed to pick the stories they choose.

Oklahoma's Schools Chief proven to be a xenophobic and ethnocentric religious bigot. Updates at 11.

I would too, r15, if they actually had to teach it seriously, including all the many questions about who may have written in and when, what is true and false in it (mostly false of course), why and when people questioned it, what its morality really is, etc, etc, etc

I'm guessing none of those questions will be allowed of course, and everyone is supposed to be taught its the unquestioned word of GOD. (Of course even then, they may be in for a shock. Nothing creates atheism more easily than a thorough reading of the Bible.)

Add to that an erosion of state's rights.

Part of their plan is to write the same legislation into law in a plurality of states and then argue that it might as well be federal law
