On Thursday, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, a Republican, signed House Bill 128 into law. Also known as the “Bible Literacy law,” it will require the Kentucky Board of Education to institute “an elective social studies course on the Hebrew Scriptures, Old Testament of the Bible, the New Testament or a combination of the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament of the Bible” — among other mandates.

At the bill signing, local outlet WDRB reported that Bevin said that he didn't know “why every state would not embrace this, why we as a nation would not embrace this.”

“You could be an atheist, and you would appreciate there’s a lot of wisdom in the Bible,” he added.

Kentucky is a red state, and also a deeply religious one: According to a recent Pew survey, 76% of the adults in Kentucky identify as Christians.
