The West Virginia Senate is considering a bill requiring all schools to provide an elective course on the Bible, WHSV-TV reports.

The proposed law would require both public and private schools to offer a course taught about either Hebrew scriptures, the Old Testament of the Bible, or the New Testament of the Bible.

The bill, introduced by Republican State Sens. Mike Azinger and Sue Cline, would permit students to use a translation of their choice, according to the television station.

The bill is proposed to teach students the history, literary style and the Bibles influence on society, WSAZ-TV reports.

It mandates that federal and state laws be followed regarding religious neutrality.
