Idaho Republicans want public schools to use the Bible as a science and law textbook

Here is the language, in pertinent part:

Be it further resolved, that the Idaho County Republican Central Committee encourages the Idaho legislature to draft and support a bill stating that the Bible is expressly permitted to be used in Idaho public schools for reference purposes to further the study of literature, comparative religion, English and foreign languages, U.S. and world history, comparative government, law, philosophy, ethics, astronomy, biology, world geography, archaeology, music, sociology, and other topics of study where an understanding of the Bible may be useful or relevant.

It’s odd that the good burghers of Idaho left mathematics off their list. After all, 1 Kings 7:23 definitively gives the value of pi as 3. None of that bullshit “trillion digits of pi.” Ignoring the Bible on that would be irrational.
