Kentucky governor signs law incorporating Bible as social studies elective

A law allowing the Bible to be included as a topic for social studies electives will take effect in Kentucky this Friday, June 30, after Kentucky’s governor, Matt Bevin, signed a bill passed by both houses of the Kentucky legislature. School boards around the state will take part in helping craft curricula to establish parameters for how the Bible will be incorporated into lessons. The law was in part done to shore up the historical value of the Bible in American history, counteracting various frivolous lawsuits filed by atheists across the country who wish to push the Bible, and anything remotely representing it, out of public forums.
