This is a historically correct statement: That dummy Trump is trying to use the same formula as when the US had an almost 100% literacy rate.

Why should the Bible be taught in public school?
There are churches on every street corner in America that teach the Bible and it's infinite interpretations - take your pick. FOR FREE.
We shouldn't be paying for it in the pubilc schools.
If there were thousands and thousands of free places where they taught English grammar, I would say stop paying to have English grammar taught in public schools.

This is simply being pragmatic - on top of obeying the law, of course.

Trump is not advocating anything official from the federal government nor is he pushing anything. He made a comment regarding what some states are doing. It none of the federal government's business what a state teaches. It is also none of the business of anyone who does not live in one of these districts.

The Bible, more than any other book, is the founding fundamental document that is the basis for western civilization.

If schools are to teach and perpetuate our culture, it is indespensible.

The bible, more than any other book, is the founding document of the suppression and delay of development of western civilization.

If schools are to teach logic and science and humanity, it should be buried in a deep dark place.

ABSOLUTLEY NOT. This shit better be taken to court right away. You want to study religion, go to church!
Teach it right alongside Greek and Roman mythology, point out the differences and similarities, introduce science to demonstrate that it's just mythology.
