Alabama State Senator: Pay Increases for Teachers are Against ‘Biblical Principle’

This is a new twist on “biblical economics” that I’ve not heard before. According to Alabama State Sen.

Payne, Alabama. McGill voiced his objections to separation of church [and state] later that same day at a Jackson County School Board meeting that resembled a revival; participants prayed and sang with their hands raised in the air.
