RE: Arizona, the Bible to be taught in public schools
The problem with reading the bible in the company of Christians is that children are taught to think about the text in an acceptable way rather than taking it for what it is and what it actually says.

When children with no understanding of genocide read the old testament they are able to argue themselves into thinking that what is recorded was right because God said so. This is part of the process of learning that even things that everyone knows and everyone accepts are wrong - those things are ok if God says so. That's programming that takes a long time to unwind.
