Tell Oklahoma State Superintendent Ryan WaltersStop requiring the Bible in Oklahoma public schools

Posted: July 8, 2024

In blatant disregard of the common good and America's commitment to religious freedom for all, Oklahoma's State Superintendent just announced that all public school classrooms in the state must now teach from the Bible, including the Ten Commandments.

"Every teacher, every classroom in the state will have a Bible in the classroom, and will be teaching from the Bible in the classroom," said State Superintendent Ryan Walters, an outspoken and rising Christian nationalist leader. He wrote, "Immediate and strict compliance is expected."

In response to criticism of the new policy, Walters went so far as to falsely claim, "[T]he separation of church and state is a myth."

Walters has an extremist religious-right past, once promising Tony Perkins' Family Research Council hate group, "We will bring God back to schools and prayer back to schools." He is an anti-LGBTQ culture warrior who has threatened teachers over atheism, bans school districts from teaching racial justice, and called a teachers' union a "terrorist organization."

Forcing Christianity on others is theocracy -- and coercion is the opposite of Christ-like love. Let's speak out publicly together to make it clear to Walters and the entire Oklahoma Department of Education that Christians support religious freedom for ALL.
