The showdown in Texas over religion in the classroom continues this week.
The Texas State Board of Education is holding hearings on the social studies curriculum. And, as we have reported before, what should be a simple discussion based on recommendations from historians has turned into a debate fueled by the Religious Right to push "Christian nation" propaganda.
Leading the way are David Barton and the Rev. Peter Marshall, two well-known Religious Right activists who were selected by the board to sit on the six-member social studies curriculum review panel.
