Lawmaker Wants Jesus 101 in Classroom.

An Arizona lawmaker wants to create a high school course for public and charter school students that would teach the Bible and its role in Western culture.

House Bill 2473, proposed by Republican state Rep. Terri Proud, would allow high schools to offer an elective course on the "critical evaluation and examination of the Bible as a literary work" beginning June 30, 2013.

A second proposal, HB 2563, would require the State Board of Education to determine requirements for a high school course titled "The Bible and its influence on Western Culture," which would include lessons on the history, literature and influence of the Old and New testaments on laws, government and culture, among other aspects of society.
