The Iowa legislature is currently considering passing a bill that the media has referenced as the “Bible bill.” This bill would allowed public schools to offer an elective class on bible literacy, citing the importance the Bible has played in America’s founding and history.
Surprisingly, not all Christians are rallying behind the bill. In fact, Rosalyn De Koster criticized it. “Fine. But then offer classes teaching the Koran and the Midrash as well as electives. Otherwise, world religions is good enough.”
De Koster is the Director of Youth Ministries at American Reformed Church in Orange City.
Astounding she wouldn’t see the value in an elective course on bible literacy being offered at Iowa’s public school and would instead insist that such courses on the Koran be offered!
