Earlier this week, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) introduced legislation recognizing the “importance of Christmas and the Christian faith.” The resolution passed 372-9.
Wednesday on Fox News, King said he introduced the bill because he believes “we’re a Christian nation founded on Christian principles.” In an interview on Alan Colmes radio show yesterday, King went even further, saying that “every child” should “be taught” the “tenets of Christianity”:
COLMES: Should they be taught Christianity, should every child learn Christianity?
KING: I think they should learn it. If you’re going to learn American history, you cannot teach it without teaching Christianity.
COLMES: It’s one thing to teach the history of how religion may have been part of our growth as a country. It’s another thing to actually teach the tenets of a religion.
