ban that Bible

I was in a discussion recently with some high school teachers. I suggested a connection between Job and a novel one of the teachers (actually a student teacher) would be using in class. As soon as I mentioned the connection, one of the experienced teachers cautioned against even mentioning the Bible in public school. If you want to avoid trouble with parents, the message was, don't bring the Bible into any discussion.

I know it's a sensitive issue, but this is great literature, folks. Is the public school environment really that hostile to Bible stories, allusions, characters?
