(Christian Post) World-renowned atheist Richard Dawkins says he supports the mission of England’s Department for Education to make sure every public school in the nation has a copy of the 1611 translation of the King James Bible.

“A native speaker of English who has never read a word of the King James Bible is verging on the barbarian,” said Dawkins in a column he wrote for The Guardian.

The author and evolutionary biologist even went as far as to say he would have donated to the cause had he been given the opportunity to do so.
