GA. Bill Would Allow Bible Study in School

United Press International - NewsTrack - Ga. bill would allow Bible study in school

Continuing on with the "bible as literature" in public schools theme, it looks like Georgia is the next state to try such a move. It is hard to argue that this can be Constitutional when they are selecting only one religion for inclusion. How does this not violate the First Amendment?

It seems like when American politicians look at what is going on in the Middle East over the cartoon protests that their solution is more religion in the U.S. Following this example, we should combat terrorism by making explosives easier to obtain and getting rid of border security. We should fight the "war on drugs" by flooding the streets with drugs.

When religion is the problem, more religion is hardly a solution.
