Here's a great example of conservative fiscal policy in California:
"Bibles would be given to every public school student in California unless parents objected under a proposed ballot measure by an Orange County man.
Now, I can almost accept the idea of teaching elements of the Bible as literature. IIRC, there were Biblical passages from the Old Testament in my World Lit textbook. I question the wisdom of using the entire Bible as textbook, however. A few selected passages in context with other ancient writings would be better, I think.
Also, permit me to rant a bit, but the state is about to go bankrupt, and these idiots want to spend $200 million to put Bibles in schools?
Finally, this is, hopefully, much ado about nothing, as this line from the article attests:
