And NO ONE EVER objected to any of us studying ANYTHING.<quoted text>
So which of the several Bibles is the "only ONE GOD & ONE LIVING, BREATHING,LIFE SAVING WORD or RELIGION! The WORD of GOD."
REPEAT for the THIRD time:
If you are going to have Bible study in the public schools, who is going to decide which Bible to study?
There are, after all, several different Bibles.
To most Protestants, it is the King James version. However, Roman Catholics have their own version, which has parts that the King James does not. They also object to their children having to study the King James or other Protestant versions. Protestants object to their children studying the Catholic Bible. The Eastern Orthodox have their own Bible, in at least two versions. Then there is the Ethiopian Bible, which has several books that none of the European Bibles have. I think the Copts and the Armenians also have distinct Bibles.
And, of course, Jews object to the New Testament, period.
And how are you going to deal with the parental uproar when their children have to study a Bible that they object to? Are Protestants who believe that the King James version is the only real Bible going to agree to use the Roman Catholic Bible? Are either going to agree to use the Eastern Orthodox Bible? And what if a teacher or school system decides to study the Ethiopian Bible?
And what about the Jews? Are they going to be forced to study the New Testament, which none of them belive to be scriptural and some think is totally abhorrent?
I AM WAITING FOR A SPECIFIC ANSWER YOU STUPID IGNORANT RELIGIOUS BIGOT!
