Donald Trump backs push for Bible classes in schools

President Trump seemed to underwrite endeavors by lawmakers in a few states to permit government funded schools to offer Bible classes. 

"Various states presenting Bible Literacy classes, giving understudies the choice of considering the Bible. Beginning to make a turn around? Extraordinary!" Mr. Trump tweeted Monday morning after "Fox and Friends" ran a section on the point. 

Christian legislators in six Republican-controlled state councils the nation over are pushing for enactment that would permit government funded schools to offer elective classes on the New and Old Testaments.


The push by moderate officials in Florida, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Virginia and West Virginia has blended some debate. Pundits of the proposition, including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), contend that government funded school classes on the Bible would endanger the partition of chapel and state revered in the First Amendment to the Constitution. 

Alabama, Iowa and West Virginia have additionally viewed as Bible proficiency bills, yet the entirety of the measures were opposed, as indicated by the Fox News report. 


However, in Kentucky, Republican Gov. Matt Bevin marked enactment in 2017 to permit government funded school understudies to take Bible and Hebrew sacred texts classes. A year prior, in January 2018, the ACLU of Kentucky communicated worry to the Kentucky Board of Education after an Open Records Act examination found that numerous courses disregarded sacred necessities that say that strict writings utilized in study halls should be mainstream, level headed and not advance a particular strict view.
