Chuck Norris Wants To Kick Secularism's Ass? [VIDEO]

'Christian Nation' Mythos Enters America's Public Schools, As 'Bible Curriculum'

Martial arts maven Chuck Norris who, legend has it, can defeat packs of savage wild animals, hordes of vicious, armed goons, and even onrushing Mack trucks with nothing more than his hands and feet, wants the Bible back in public schools. But roundhouse kicks or even the "claw of death", though appropriate against Bruce Lee, are not especially useful for slipping a sectarian Bible course curriculum touting fake history into public schools. Stealthy, social tactics are needed. Will Chuck Norris become a Liar For Jesus ? We don't yet know but the cult icon has renounced his lone ranger ways and pummeling flurries of hands and feet, to tout the work of the National Council On Bible Curriculum In Public Schools as it sneaks, in a slick wrapper of dubious and flat-out fraudulent takes on American history, its Christian nationalist Bible course curriculum into public schools, cities, and towns across America.

Meet the The National Council On Bible Curriculum In Public Schools (NCBCPS), a stealth effort associated with the far right Council On National Policy and led by a woman who has said God has commanded her to bring the Bible back into public education.

Is the National Council On Bible Curriculum In Public Schools "furtive" as my title suggested ? You might not think so if you go to the NCBCPS website, where giant animated words float in and proclaim, to a triumphant blaring of horns, "IT'S COMING BACK". Below that supersized proclamation is the claim "Our Bible Curriculum Has Been Voted Into 382 schools districts, to date, in 37 states." But, the NCBCPS won't divulge the names of those school districts, not will the organization provide a copy of their current curriculum to journalists or other interested parties.

Evidence suggests that the NCBCPS has insinuated a politicized course curriculum featuring fraudulent history to American public schools from Texas to New Jersey. According to the NCBCPS website "The program is concerned with education rather than indoctrination of students." but analysis of the organization's curriculum suggests otherwise.
