Georgia: The Tyranny of the Majority

Of Pandas and People, the intelligent design textbook, is so five minutes ago. The Georgia legislature is set to require the Department of Education there to teach the history and literature of the Bible.

The Christian Science Monitor reports that the Bible bill "has overwhelmingly passed both chambers, but needs a final vote on a minor House change. The vote is expected as early as Monday. If it passes, the state's Department of Education has a year to establish Bible elective courses in the curriculum.

"The Bible is already being used as a course study in as many as 1,000 American high schools, according to the National Council on Bible Curriculum in Public Schools in Greensboro, N.C. The US Supreme Court allows it as long as it's presented objectively, and not taught as fact. But the Georgia legislature's unprecedented decision to wade into what is usually a school district initiative has created concerns."
