"hot off the press" in the New York Times was a story about the Bible Museum that the Green family (founders of Hobby Lobby) plan to build in Washington D.C., a mere two blocks from the National Mall. Steve Green, president of Hobby Lobby and the son of its founder, has referred to the Bible as “a reliable historical document,”
and, as part of the museum project, he is developing a curriculum to “reintroduce this book to the public"
(as you can see in the picture, Mr. Green and his mother, like just about ALL of the religious right people, apparently don't have a lot of fun in their lives)
For now, at least, Mr.Green has postponed the the August introduction of his Bible curriculum, which has been adopted by the Mustang, Oklahoma school district. Since the Supreme Court has banned teachings with a religious perspective to be taught in public schools, don't be surprised if this one eventually makes it to the Supreme Court again.
Washington D.C, naturally, is full of religious symbols (including the phrase " Laus Deo" on the top of the Washington Monument) , which likely would not sit well with our Founding Fathers, who believed strongly in the separation of Church and State.
The article above also mentions that Creation Museum in Kentucky, which has roundly criticized by a number of sources.
Since the Bible museum is apparently being welcomed by the folks in D.C., it's fairly likely that it's going to get built. If I ever got back to the nation's capitol, this is definitely NOT one of the places that I would want to visit!!
