Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin touts ‘Bring Your Bible to School Day’ on Thursday

by Lucas Aulbach, Louisville Courier Journal  |  Published on October 4, 2019

Gov. Matt Bevin wants students to celebrate a holiday on Oct. 3 – and no, he isn’t talking about Mean Girls Day.

This Thursday, Bevin wants kids to bring the Holy Scripture to class and take part in “Bring Your Bible to School Day,” an annual event that encourages students of all ages to take the religious text into the classroom.

“I would encourage you, please, don’t just bring your Bible to school, but read your Bible. Bring it, share it with others. If you have an extra Bible, bring it and share it with somebody who doesn’t have one, who maybe has never read this book,” Bevin said Tuesday in a video posted on social media.

“Bring Your Bible to School Day” is sponsored by Focus on the Family, a national Christian organization that has come under fire in years past for support for “conversion therapy,” a widely dismissed practice that seeks to “cure” LGBTQ people of their sexual orientation.
