No, no, no!
ATLANTA - A bill that allows public high schools to offer classes on the Bible sped through the House Monday, passing overwhelmingly with no debate.

The proposal, originally introduced by a band of Senate Democrats, surprised many by urging that the Bible should be taught as an elective in Georgia's public schools.

Republicans quickly substituted their own version, which specifies that the Bible itself would be the course textbook. The measure easily passed the GOP-controlled Senate last month by a 50-1 vote.

With Democrats like these, who need Republicans? And will it now be okay to teach physics in churches? I mean, as long as we are mixing the two...

The article concludes with this reassurance:
The proposal also requires that the courses should be taught "in an objective and nondevotional manner with no attempt made to indoctrinate students."

Sure. Uh huh.
