It may teach atheists a little about religion
Most atheists and agnostics are far and away more versed on the Bible than your average Christian.
There are some good things to take from the Bible. But, there are things to leave also.
Do you kill someone for being gay? According to Leviticus, you should.
Do you eat meat from a pig? Again, Leviticus (the Lord's biggest buzz kill) says no, no, no....
If someone really wants to learn about other religions, school curriculum will not prevent it. They will learn it on their own. Also, it's the
PARENTS' job to instruct their children in matters of faith, not the school's. If you want it, there are several religious school options
available....where the Bible will indeed be used as a textbook, but you can't honestly propose doing so for ALL students, can you? Or, are you just
that much of an evangelist?
