Texas Textbooks Under Fire for Suggesting Moses Influenced Founding Fathers

Social studies textbooks that have been proposed for use by Texas students next fall are coming under fire by those who take issue with the positively Christian worldview therein, including suggestions that Moses and the Ten Commandments were an influence on the founding of the nation, Christian News Network reports.

The Texas Board of Education is set to vote tomorrow on the controversial set of books that are proposed for eight public social studies courses, which may also find their way into other states across the nation.

Opponents of the textbooks take issue with a number of factors, including its linking of terrorism to Islam, its challenge to the contention that humans are responsible for climate change and its assertion that the laws of Moses were an influence on America’s Founding Fathers.
