Holy Book Given Bigger Role in Childrens’ Education

Every so often you hear or read a report from some backwoods place where they either don’t have any separation of church and state, or they’re trying to get rid of it.

Here’s a new article about one such place. A new law there requires that all schools must offer information relating to their holy book in their curriculum.

The law actually passed in 2007, but this will be the first school year it is enforced because the bill says, “The provisions of this act pertaining to a school district do not take effect until the 2009-2010 school year.”

School officials said schools have not enforced the law because of confusion over the bill’s wording and lack of state funding.

All you need is some wealthy Salafist benefactors or nearest analogue to that to provide the funds, then you’re all set.
