President Donald Trump espoused “Bible Literacy classes” as a “turn back” for the nation in a tweet Monday morning.
“Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!” Trump wrote on Twitter Monday morning.
Kentucky passed a Bible studies bill in 2017, and similar bills have been introduced in Florida, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia in 2019, reported USA Today on Wednesday.
“The Bible is an integral part of our society and deserves a place in the classroom,” Republican North Dakota state Rep. Aaron McWilliams, who co-sponsored his state’s Bible studies bill that would apply to public high schools, said, according to USA Today.
