What do you think of this law that supposedly allows Kentucky to have Bible Class in public schools?

Asked by Dutchess_III (36238points) 2 months ago

I haven’t checked to see if this is true, but lets say it is. What do you think of it?

IMO a comparative religion class in Jr. High or High School would be awesome, but to only offer Bible classes is wrong, unless it’s a private school.

Do you think a comparative religion class has any place in a public school? It would be under Social Studies.

Just one more example of why “Ken-tuck-ieee” is an absolutely ass-backwards shithole of a state.

It would be okay if they had a Koran Class and a Talmud Class. And maybe Baghavad Gita too.

That would be awesome @zenvelo. And I agree. They should have bagels. With cream cheese.

Someone should secretly swap all the bibles with satanic bibles.

A comparative religion class would be great only if it includes atheism. At the very least, the Euthyphro Dilemma should be discussed.

Wasn’t Kentucky the scene of the Scopes Monkey Trial in the 20’s? Or was it Tennessee? Not that there is much difference..,

More backwards than sin.

It was Tennessee. Although the defendant in the trial, John Scopes, was from Kentucky (Paducah, to be specific).

Of course. They can’t make it a requirement.

Give a dog a finger, and he will bite off your whole arm.
They are going to try it at some point.

They will be sued and lose.

It might be an elective, but I know these shitbilly teachers in these little shitbilly towns – they’ll try their hardest to nudge their students into this “elective” class.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Probably. And if word gets back to the more intelligent parents….lawsuit.

Darth_Algar's avatar

You’re assuming that there are many intelligent people in Kentucky. They are very few and very far between.

Dutchess_III's avatar

LOL! I’m not going to make that assumption! I think people think the same thing about Kansas.
