Kentucky Senate panel approves Bible classes for public schools

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky may follow the lead of Texas and
other states in allowing Bible classes to be taught in public
schools.
The Senate Education Committee on Thursday unanimously approved legislation that would effectively return the Bible to classrooms across Kentucky.
Democratic state Sen. David Boswell of Owensboro is sponsoring
the legislation, which he said is modeled after a measure approved
by Texas lawmakers some two years ago.
Boswell said he believes the legislation is constitutional
because the Bible will be taught from a literary perspective, not a
religious one. He said what sets this legislation apart is that it
proposes teaching, not preaching, the Bible.

The legislation is Senate Bill 142.
