State Religion

The State of Georgia has signed a law that will allow the teaching of the Bible in public schools. notice the problem though:

The study, written by Mark Chancey of Southern Methodist University, says that the program teaches the Bible from a primarily conservative Protestant view.
and just how accurate is the Protestant view of the Bible? According to Protestants, it is pretty accurate, but unfortunately for them, America is not just Protestant---as much as they would want it to be (I'll get to this later)---America is a cornucopia, a kaleidoscope of religions and views. Is it not? If you are going to teach the Bible from a Protestant perspective, why not also show the Catholic perspective? or the Mormon? Oh wait, Protestants don't see Mormons as Christians, I forgot..... This is not about teaching the Bible. This is about Protestants finding any insidious way to convert more people to their faith. This time, through force. After all, what choice do children have in what they are taught?
