Gov. Matt Bevin is reminding Kentuckians that tomorrow, October 3 2019, is a state-wide "Bring Your Bible to School Day." This is unacceptable to those of us who do not follow that path or creed and this petition serves as conscientious objection to the day and what it stands for - be it politically or religiously motivated.

Schools are federally and state-funded. This means they are bound to the federal and state constitutions which clearly delineate a separation of Church and State. Public schools are not the appropriate place to inculcate religion into our children and youth. This affects everyone K - 12, young people at colleges and universities, and their families and loved ones.

Anyone who is not a Christian (and hopefully law-abiding, ethical Christians) might find the notion of this day - and the inherent radicalism and indoctrination that comes with proselytizing -unfathomably inappropriate. 

Our schools are institutions of learning and growth. They are there to give our children and young people the tools they need to think critically and operate well in the current demanding world we live in. They are not there to teach our children religion. We have churches, institutions, and all manner of resources available.

Keep the Bible out of our schools. It doesn't belong there.
