Use of The Bible and Its Influence has become controversial in school boards and state legislatures, especially in the South. When I was made aware of the "Bible Literacy Project" I rejoiced, thinking that this was a way for students to study religion in the Godless public schools. I endorsed the Project. Now that I have been made aware of what this Project is really about, thanks to Senator Beason, I hereby withdraw my endorsement. Once again liberals stole what began as a worthwhile initiative. This is worse than public schools without God. This may well cause young impressionable young people to lose their faith and to be contemptuous of those who have faith.
