Texas lawmakers won’t require Bible classes

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A plan to require public schools to teach classes with the Bible as a textbook was changed by a Texas legislative panel to make such classes optional instead. The House Public Education Committee approved the modified bill Thursday, drawing praise from critics who feared mandatory Bible courses would be more religious than academic.

Sanity prevails in Texas.
