High school bible classes attract ACLU attention

Read Article


    "Gary Harris isn’t seeking converts. Still, the Bible is his business as he spends his days leading classes on its history at Laney and Hoggard high schools. The more students learn, the more complete an experience the Bible becomes, Harris said.

    He’s teaching, not preaching, however. The classes are academic courses open to the students who choose them, he said. His 8:30 a.m. New Testament class at Laney has barely an empty seat. But recent inquiries from the American Civil Liberties Union have raised questions about whether the classes and others like it at Ashley and New Hanover high schools violate the constitutional separation of church and state."

As Stop the ACLU writes:

    "The ACLU fight for a sex offender to live within a mile radius of our schools. The ACLU fight against filters on school library internet, giving complete access to any kind of filth. The ACLU fights for a thirteen year old child to have an abortion through their counselor without parental consent. Obviously, what most people see as a true threat to our children, the ACLU are on the opposite side of. What the ACLU finds threatening to our children at school is the Bible."
