Law urges South Dakota schools to expand Bible instruction

By CHET BROWAW Associated Press

PIERRE, S.D. — South Dakota lawmakers who urged public schools to provide academic instruction on the Bible may need the patience of Job as they wait for schools to embrace the idea.

With only a few lawmakers questioning whether it could blur the line between government and religion, the Legislature approved a non-binding resolution encouraging public schools to teach about the Bible and its influence on Western civilization's art, history and culture.

South Dakota follows Oklahoma, Texas, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee in passing such a measure.

Kingsway Christian Church Associate Pastor Bob Mason hopes people in Yankton will ask the school district to include a Bible course in its curriculum.

But School Superintendent Joseph Gertsema said teachers already refer to the Bible when it's key to understanding history, art and literature.

Thank you so much for the heads up on this Gail!!! We need to get God back in our schools. This nation started out as a witness to God and we have lost His favor in the last 50 years but it is not too late to turn back to Him (2 Chronicles 7:14)
