This special episode features testimony by Word&Way Editor & President Brian Kaylor before the Missouri House of Representatives Special Committee on Student Accountability. The hearing featured debate over a proposed bill to promote a "Bible literacy" course in high schools. The bill is part of the nationwide "Project Blitz" effort to undermine the separation of church and state. After nine individuals spoke for the bill, Kaylor offered the lone testimony against it. This testimony includes many references to the Baptist heritage of advocating for religious liberty for all, and this issue has national implications.
