Sunday school

Hate to disturb the day of rest with this tiny AP item buried in Saturday's Times, but making the Bible a legally sanctioned part of the high-school curriculum in a state as vast as Texas is too unnerving to ignore.

Texas is among the nation's largest consumers (and commissioners) of textbooks; it's Econ 101 that many publishers develop books to Texas standards and then distribute to schools in states nationwide. So who knows what these Bible-study seeds might sow -- or where.

And take a look at the last sentence, citing teachers generally unfamiliar with the separation of church and state. How about church and schoolhouse door?
