FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The Kentucky Senate approves a so-called "religious expression" bill.
The measure, sponsored by Republican Senator Albert Robinson, would allow students at public schools to engage in religious or political activities on school grounds.
It also would permit teachers to use the Bible for the secular study of religion, its history and role in the U.S.
The legislation is in part a response to a Kentucky school's decision to cut Bible passages referenced in a performance of ``A Charlie Brown Christmas.''
The bill now goes to the Republican-controlled House.
