Action Alert

As bible class bill advances, please ask your reps. to vote no before it’s too late!

HB 267, the Project Blitz bill that would allow state-funded public schools to indoctrinate students with bible classes, has passed the House and is headed to the Missouri Senate Education Committee. We need your help to make sure this bill doesn’t get any closer to becoming law.

HB 267 is part of Project Blitz, the Christian fundamentalists’ nationwide legislative push to inject state legislatures with a whole host of religious bills. It is an unvarnished attack on American secularism and civil liberties — those things we most cherish about our democracy and must tirelessly defend.

While politicians often claim that these laws are intended to teach the bible in the context of U.S. history, we know their true agenda is to abuse their access to young and impressionable children and indoctrinate them with religious orthodoxy. Public school bible classes have been tried across the country and have invariably ended up unconstitutionally promoting religion. Click here to learn more. 

This bill recently passed the Missouri House, and now we need to put pressure on the members of the Senate Education Committee to stop this bill in its tracks. Please use our automated system to get connected to members of the committee and feel free to use or adapt the talking points below.
