LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Gov. Matt Bevin wants students to bring the Holy Scriptures to class Thursday, as part of an annual event called “Bring Your Bible to School Day.”
In a video posted Tuesday on Twitter, Bevin said: “I would encourage you, please, don’t just bring your Bible to school, but read your Bible. Bring it, share it with others. If you have an extra Bible, bring it and share it with somebody who doesn’t have one, who maybe has never read this book.”
“Bring Your Bible to School Day” is put on by Focus on the Family, a national Christian organization.
Bevin’s post comes after a push to display the motto “In God We Trust” in schools that state lawmakers approved the move during the 2019 regular session.
? STUDENTS ?#BringYourBible to School Day is THIS Thursday, Oct. 3!
The Judeo-Christian principles that are bound in this book are timeless, containing an amazing amount of history, knowledge, wisdom and guidance…
