Bibles In Schools Cause War!
No, I've not gone off my rocker, the heading of this post was a statement made by a contributor to a BBC radio phone-in yesterday about the placing of bibles in schools. I was shocked to hear this as, when I did my History degree, not a single one of my lecturers told me that Hitler had actually invaded Poland to place bibles in classrooms. Nor that the Koreans were actually fighting each other in the fifties, and the Vietnamese in the sixties, about whether to place bibles in schools or not. Just goes to show.
Radio phone-ins, scarier than watching Jeremy Kyle!
