FRANKFORT, KY (LEX 18)– Governor Matt Bevin is encouraging students to participate in Bring Your Bible to School Day on Thursday, however, several schools are on Fall Break.

Bevin posted a video to Twitter on Tuesday talking about the day, calling the Bible an “incredible document containing history, knowledge, wisdom, and guidance.”

Last summer, Bevin signed a law that allows Kentucky public schools to teach elective Bible literacy classes.

Students are allowed to bring any religious text to school any time they want as part of the country’s freedom of religion protection.
