I agree with the Texas School Board. For too many years liberals had their say in what goes into text books, it was political correctness run amuk. Time to even it up a bit!

Well yes, but all humans were created under God... and since America is (supposed) to be a beacon of freedom and all laws based on natural law, aka God's law, that's why it's called a nation founded under god... because it's based on God's principles...
No. The United States Constitution is SO FAR from anything that's in the Bible its not even funny. The Founders were Deists who believed in separation of Church and State because of what had happened for years in Europe (everything from Crusades to Inquisitions). The Bible says people who work on the Sabbath should be killed and personifies God as a tyrant King damning all oppose him to Hell. The Bible is a poor moral code and is neither the original basis for our laws or our Constitution.
The madness that is happening in Texas is bad enough but to know that what Textbooks Texans use usually apply to the whole country makes this a frightening development indeed.
