"Rep. Chris Smith: ‘Our Students Must Find The God Of The Bible And Biblical Values In The Classroom"

No, Christopher. They needn't.

Smith’s call for “Biblical values in the classroom” could easily be interpreted as a call for the promotion of Christianity in American schools. But, as the First Amendment Center has pointed out, “the courts have been clear that public school teachers cannot teach religion to their students or read the Bible to the class as a way of promoting their faith.”
It's called the Constitution, Junior. And regardless of what Chimpy says, it's not "just a goddamned piece of paper."
