Multiple states are considering the addition of optional Bible literacy classes, allowing students to study the historical importance of the Book.
One sponsor of the bill in North Dakota, Rep. Aaron McWilliams stated, “Yeah, there is a separation of church and state, but there’s not a separation of books from education…If we don’t have a good foundational understanding of this, we’re not going to understand how the Founding Fathers of our country and other countries put it together to have the world we have today,” according to Fox News.
North Dakota, being one of six states to propose this Bible bill, including Florida, Indiana, Missouri, Virginia, and West Virginia, got some positive attention from President Trump.
Rep. McWilliams advocates for the Bible bill based off the fact that it had such an influence on how the Founding Fathers created our government. He references that our judicial system comes from Exodus 18 and the hierarchy of Judges. The moral codes that the country upholds come from the Bible, so the Book should be available as a possible history elective, according to McWilliams.
A proponent of other religious texts as possible classes, such as the Quran, Rep. McWilliams states, “without allowing a Bible into the schools, without allowing a Quran or any other religious text in the school, we look at establishing a religion of secularism in our schools.”
Facing backlash from those against the Bible bill, “State legislators should not be fooled that these bills are anything more than part of a scheme to impose Christian beliefs on public schoolchildren,” Rachel Laser, CEO of Americans United for Separation of Church and States said.
Not wasting an opportunity to slam President Trump for supporting the Bible bill, Laser stated:
While many critics seem to insinuate that the bill will be “forcing” students to take biblical classes, Rep. McWilliams highlights that these Bible literacy classes are to be taken as an optional elective for historical purposes. Schools have the option of providing these classes and students have the option of taking them.
Florida Thug Stages Arson Attack on Catholic Church with Parishioners Inside
The scum wanted to burn those inside.
A Florida manned staged a calculated arson attack on a Marion County Catholic church with the hopes of burning the parishioners inside on Saturday morning.
Steven Shields is accused of intentionally crashing a vehicle into the doors of Queen of Peace Catholic Church, before retrieving a can of gasoline and dumping it throughout the church’s foyer area. He lit a dangerous fire before fleeing the church in his vehicle. Church members had been preparing for Saturday morning liturgy inside the building.
Shields was later apprehended on a county highway. Fortunately, no one appears to have been injured in his arson attack on the church.
Shields is facing a lengthy list of felony charges for the despicable arson attack on the church and those inside. He’s been charged with one account of attempted second-degree murder, arson of a structure where persons are present, burglary, felony fleeing.
He reportedly told Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies that he’s a diagnosed schizophrenic and that he “has a problem” with the Catholic church, claiming his attack on the parish was part of a “mission.”
Sheriff Billy Woods identified the event as an attack of freedom of religion in his county.
“Our freedom of worship granted in the Constitution is a freedom that we all hold dear. My deputies and I are sworn to protect that right and will always ensure our citizens can worship in peace. I’m proud of my deputies for capturing this man so quickly and we appreciate the assistance from all of the state and federal agencies that worked alongside us during this investigation.”
Shields is being held without bond.
