There's this problem with literature classes --
oh hell. There's always a problem with literature classes.
But the current problem is a religious problem, I suppose.
Teachers aren't allowed to teach the Bible in school. However, kids are still expected to catch all the Biblical references in literature because apparently "it's just an integral part of Western literature."
WTF. This is like teaching kids calculus without teaching them Algebra first. How is someone supposed to know who John was if they were learning the Vedas instead?
Discuss what should be done.
