Kentucky governor approves Bible study in public schools

A bill signed by Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin will bring the Bible front and center in the state's public schools. Students will soon be able to learn about Jesus Christ, walking a fine line constitutionally, as the ACLU watches on. 

A ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday marked the signing of House Bill 128, which will take effect on June 30. Several other bills that made their way to the governor's desk will also go into effect on that day, according to WDRB. 

The controversial bill "allows public schools to offer an elective social studies course on the Bible that teaches Biblical content, characters, poetry and narratives and their impact on today's world,"according to a press release.
