SD House Urges Academic Study Of Bible In Schools

SD House Urges Academic Study Of Bible In Schools
PIERRE, SD - The South Dakota House has endorsed a measure encouraging the academic study of the Bible in the state's public schools.

Representatives voted 55-15 to pass the resolution and send it to the Senate for further discussion.

The measure has no force of law, but encourages school districts to add instruction so students become familiar with the content, characters and narratives of the Bible. The resolution says the instruction also should make students aware of the role the Bible has played in the development of literature, art, culture and public discourse.

Rep. Steve Hickey of Sioux Falls, who is also a pastor, says the measure does not violate the constitutional separation of church and state. He says schools can teach about religion and the Bible.
