Please Explain

Why is it that our children are forbidden to read the Bible in a government school but, if they land in a federal prison as an adult, are encouraged to read it?

Couldn’t the formerly accepted practice help to avoid the later incarceration?

And why do we take an oath upon the Bible when testifying in a court of law but, outside that very courthouse, a display of the Ten Commandments is “illegal”?

Wouldn’t more exposure to the laws displayed outside keep some from ending up on the “receiving end” of the law inside?
