It’s an elective
A bill was proposed recently in the General Assembly to add elective courses for credit on the Old Testament, the New Testament or a combination of both to public high school curricula.
The main argument against this bill is that it is too difficult to teach the Bible in public schools in a manner consistent with the First Amendment. Does the First Amendment not also protect freedom of religion?
In America, it is our free choice to believe or not in any religion we desire.
Just as we have a free choice of religion, students would and should have the choice of whether to take these religious courses.
Who are we to say that they cannot take a course concerning their religion if that is what they desire?
