Passages from the Bible could become part of the curriculum in North Carolina's public high schools under legislation proposed in the General Assembly.


The bill would allow local school boards to offer elective courses for credit on the Old Testament, the New Testament or a combination of both.

No student would be required to take the classes, but they would provide academic credit toward graduation. While civil libertarians worry about religious courses at taxpayer-supported schools violating the Constitutional separation of church and state, primary sponsor Sen. Stan Bingham said Wednesday he doesn't see a problem.

So bills outlawing boobs and putting church in public schools is what we get to look forward to as a state with Republicans in control.

This is good news as having bible verses back in school will deflect any of Obama "false flag" patzi's bullets pointed at NC public school students.

If only the Newtown kids had this much care offered to them by the repubs..

Absentee God? Not in NC!!

It never ceases to amaze me how much my fellow Christians want to ram their philosophies down people's throats.

I have noticed that lately, the athiest and agnostics are much more anoying and ill intentioned than the Jesus freaks we used to incounter in the 70s. Certianly much more agressive and even hateful.

Bible classes were already being taught... I guess the difference is that they would count toward graduation?

Not really for either the UNC requirement nor the NC electives, but love watching each side promote and demean
