Odessa school district sued over Bible elective

By MATT CURRY Associated Press Writer �� 2007 The Associated Press

DALLAS �� Two advocacy groups filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday against a 
West Texas school district on behalf of eight parents who say a Bible course 
violates their religious liberty.

The American Civil Liberties Union and People for the American Way 
Foundation sued the Ector County Independent School District, asking the 
Odessa school system stop teaching the course.

More info at the url above. I believe that even with the new "restrictions" 
that have been added to the Bible class bill currently in the Texas Senate, 
these types of lawsuits will be filed, and with good cause. The classes are 
not about teaching, but preaching, and most politicians seem to be oblivious 
to that fact. Texas members, PLEASE call your state senator now and let 
him/her know of your opinion of the Bible class bill. That's HB 3678. I'm 
working on getting the senate bill number for it now.
