Hobby Lobby Leaders Hope to Spread Bible Course to Thousands of Schools
The president of a company that is currently challenging Obamacare laws before the Supreme Court is also trying to bring a class about the Bible to thousands of schools.
Earlier this week, Mustang Public Schools in Oklahoma voted to adopt a Bible course developed under the leadership of Hobby Lobby president Steve Green, according to The Washington Post. Those involved with the course told the outlet they hope other school districts will soon follow suit.
The course, which Mustang schools will offer as an elective during the fall 2014 semester, focuses on the history of the Bible and the influence of the Old and New Testaments, according to the Christian Post. Mustang Schools Superintendent Sean McDaniel told the outlet the course is totally nonsectarian and was written by scholars with various religious backgrounds.
“The curriculum has been through a rigorous review to check for bias and ensure the content is neutral,” McDaniel told the Christian post.
