Letter: Churches seek influence over schools
First Published May 13 2014 03:57 pm • Last Updated May 13 2014 03:57 pm

Charles Ashcraft’s letter of May 10 expressing disapproval of Steve Green’s efforts to have Bible courses taught in Oklahoma schools was amusing.

Does he also (like many of us non-Mormons) find the teachings of the LDS Church at every Utah senior high school upsetting too? O.K., so they are across the street and elective, but just another example to me of the lack of separation of church and state here. The predominate religion exerts its influence not only in our schools, but in our legislative, processes as well.

Does Green’s planned curriculum threaten LDS seminary classes in Oklahoma? Why do we care what or where biblical teachings are available in a Bible Belt state?
