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.
