(Worthy News) - The Arkansas House has approved a bill that requires public schools to offer an elective course on the Bible if students request one.
The bill approved by the House on Tuesday by a 64-7 vote would require a public school to offer the academic study of the Bible if at least 15 students request one.
The course would be taught in what the legislation calls a "nondevotional manner with no attempt made to indoctrinate students." [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
