Bibles Now Required in Schools, Deemed Foundational to America

The Bible is heading back to the classroom in the Sooner State.

Oklahoma officials announced June 27, the state is requiring a copy of the Bible to be in every public school classroom, beginning immediately, according to The Oklahoman.

“Adherence to this mandate is compulsory,” said Ryan Walters, superintendent of Oklahoma state schools. “Further instructions for monitoring and reporting on this implementation for the 2024/25 school year will be forthcoming. Immediate and strict compliance is expected.”

During a press conference, Walters described the Bible as a “necessary historical document to teach our kids about the history of this country, to have a complete understanding of Western civilization [and] to have an understanding of the basis of our legal system.”

He went on to say the Holy Book is “one of the most foundational documents used for the Constitution and the birth of our country.”
