WorldNetDaily Revises Chuck Norris Column on Bible Syllabus

Wording changed in wake of lawsuit over Bible class in public schools

Mr Chuck Norris, Bible scholar

At Dispatches from the Culture Wars, Ed Brayton has been keeping a close watch on the upcoming trial in Odessa, Texas, over the use in schools of the National Council On Bible Curriculum In Public Schools (NCBCPS), a fundamentalist project which, as I wrote about on this blog a while back, is completely devoid of serious scholarly input and which promotes the work of pseudo-scholars like David Barton. The syllabus is now the subject of a lawsuit over the issue of church-state separation. On August 12 Ed wrote that:

The NCBCPS is now featuring a column by Chuck Norris pushing their curriculum, originally published in the Worldnutdaily, right on their front page (and yes, I have it archived; as the trial gets closer, it will almost certainly disappear). In the column Norris, who is on the advisory board of the NCBCPS, declares that this curriculum is “Your first step to get God back into your public school.”

And sure enough, that’s what happened. But even more interestingly, WorldNetDaily has now followed suit in an effort to help the NCBCPS.
