Shocker Alert- China Removes Biblical Sayings from Chongqing School

A Congqing China school has decided to remove Biblical sayings from class. In all honesty, I am shocked they ever taught it.

“BEIJING – Students of a middle school in Chongqing municipality have lost their option to learn Biblical sayings amid a public debate on whether the “literature class” they are in runs athwart of education laws, the head of the school said on Wednesday. “Our intention was good in the first place, aiming to diversify students’ knowledge and improve their characters by comparing Western and Eastern literatures”, said Deng Xiaopeng, the vice-principal of the Affiliate Middle School of Southwest China Normal University.”
