SD Lawmakers Urge Academic Bible Study

January 30, 2012, 3:53 PM by Karen Sherman

SD Lawmakers Urge Academic Bible Study
PIERRE, SD - The South Dakota Legislature has given final approval to a measure urging the state's school districts to provide academic instruction on the Bible.

The Senate voted 25-10 to pass the resolution despite arguments from critics that it could blur the line between religion and government.

The non-binding resolution, which passed the House last week, has no force of law.

Sen. Elizabeth Kraus of Rapid City says schools should teach about the Bible because it permeates western civilization's culture, laws and literature. She says such instruction can be done without violating the constitutional separation of church and state.

But Sen. Tom Hansen of Huron says he opposes the measure because the state should regulate state affairs and churches should regulate church issues.
