President Donald Trump threw enthusiastic support behind states looking to implement Bible literacy classes in public schools. Most taxpayer-funded schools offer general teachings on world religions including Christianity, but Biblical literacy classes would go much more in-depth.
Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!

Bible literacy is only "controversial" because we live in such an aggressively stupid society. Obviously kids in school should read the most influential and important book ever compiled. You can disbelieve every word in it and that doesn't change its impact and importance. https://t.co/cERqG3E3aC

Impossible to understand letters from the Founders or speeches of Lincoln without Biblical literacy.
Shockingly ignorant journalists (& tbh, Presidents who say “two Corinthians”) could use some Biblical literacy too. https://t.co/CM65IMVoIj

Think of all the stupid, useless books you were made to read in school. Then consider that you explicitly were not made to read the most influential book in the history of the world. What reasonable person could possibly oppose Bible literacy?
