Absolutely.  Teach the Bible as "history" and "literature" in public school!

 

I actually feel that if you do that, the kids should be required to read it cover-to-cover.  None of this picking-and-chooseing, no "interpreting" it (in other words, taking this verse or that verse out of context and giving it an interpretation that is acceptable in the modern world....leave those suckers in context so the kids can REALLY understand EXACTLY what those verses entail), No spotty and selective use of parts of various versions and translations air-brushed together like a composite super-model...just the most attractive parts of each one with the problematic portions of some versions being superceded by more convenient ones from others.

Kids will be fleeing the church in droves.

Some will drop before they get through the contradictory creation stories.

Unfortunatly, that doesn't appear to be the plan of this particular organization.
