    We invest more money in our prisons than our schools anyways.

    Are they? They are both govt institutes. One is supposed to train young people how to function in society. The other is supposed to correct/punish them for not being able to. The Bible is accepted in prisons as ONE of several options for helping "correct" these people, yet, those same people wouldn't have been allowed to read it when they were training and learning in school on how to function as a civil human being. Hmmm.

    The title of this thread is a LIE. Reading the bible in school isn't banned.

    Except Bible reading is not prohibited in schools. Teachers can even require reading portions of the Bible if it's relevant to the course. The school can't require reading verses with no secular purpose and the school can't teach the Bible to teach religion: about religion, yes.
