The case against teaching the Bible in public schools

Children’s BibleIn response to Time Magazine’s new cover story “The Case for Teaching The Bible” by David Van Biema, I’d like to simply list a few of the stories and passages our children may be exposed to if the Bible is taught in Public Schools.
