The Texas Bible Curriculum gets a failing grade. Apparently it isn’t an ecumenical study of the bible, but instead nothing more than indoctrination of a sectarian viewpoint. Who would have thunk it? An example:
This curriculum goes beyond observing that Christians and Jews believe in the divine inspiration of the Bible. It explicitly and repeatedly endorses those beliefs by presentng such inspiration asa fact. Furthermore, the curriculum attempts to persuade teachers and students to adopt viewsof the Bible that are common in some conservative Protestat circles but are rejected by most scholars (Christian and non-Christian), other branches of Christianity, and Jews. It presents its own sectarian views as objectively true, and in many cases those views are the only ones presented…
As the report will indicate, such problems are not limited to the passages noted above [I have not included them]; thgey are present throughout the curriculum.
