The Republican Party is taking aim at women by turning the Bible into a new kind of sex ed textbook.
The new book, The Bible and the Body, is being developed by a group of Republican lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas.
The GOP’s new book will be the first time the Bible has been taught in a classroom, with some of the new titles and information being put in place to address a new set of concerns.
“This is going to be a book that the young people can read in a real context and it’s not just the content that they’re going to learn about sexuality, they’re also going to get the fact that it is a book of the bible that is part of the body of the book,” said Rep. Ryan Costello, R -Pa., chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee.
The bible is not the only new book in the GOP’s effort to reach a younger audience, with other items including: The Bible in a Bible Classroom: The first step in the effort is to create a book specifically geared toward young children, with titles like The Bible: A Guide for Young Children.
The book will have a lot of content, including an introduction to the Bible and an interactive version of the story of Abraham.
The Bible in Classrooms: The book includes books about the Bible, including Genesis, the first chapters of Leviticus, Deuteronomy, and Proverbs.
These are not just a collection of the books in the Bible but also provide more information about how people are learning about the stories of the world and how people live today.
The Bible: The Complete Book of the Scriptures: The complete Bible book will also be available in digital form for classroom use.
The Bible for a Good Life: This book will include the Bible in the context of a social justice gospel and offer students the opportunity to learn more about God’s teachings and the Bible’s role in the social justice movement.
The Bible for All: The next book in this series is called The Bible to a Good Place: A Bible to All Lives.
This book addresses the topic of gender identity and sexual orientation.
The Good Bible: This is a collection that will address the biblical worldview and what God is doing.
Students will learn more than they ever would have before about God, His people, and what the Bible teaches about God.
“I believe that it’s important for parents to have access to the Holy Bible, and the people who are coming in and coming out of the church should be able to have a solid understanding of the words of the Holy Book, what it means, what the teachings of the Church are,” Costello said.
The GOP is hoping the new book could help educate younger generations about the biblical message.
“There’s a lot that the Bible says that needs to be taught to children, and it can’t just be the text,” Costell said.
“It needs to go beyond the text and the book and into the heart of the issues.”
