President Donald Trump endorsed proposals from lawmakers in six states that would allow public schools to offer Bible literacy classes.
Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 28, 2019
USA Today reports the proposals would require or encourage public schools to offer elective classes on the Bible with a focus on its historical significance. Critics argue the classes could violate the constitutional separation between church and state.
The states where the Bible bills have been introduced include Florida, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Virginia and West Virginia.
Former Republican Congressional candidate Justin Lurie and owner of Regal Media Todd Smith discuss the proposals with Isiah Carey.
