Despite being advised by the state’s attorney general (a Republican) that:
“Yes, designating The Holy Bible as the official state book of Tennessee would violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the federal Constitution and Article I, § 3, of the Tennessee Constitution, which provides ‘that no preference shall ever be given, by law, to any religious establishment or mode of worship.'”
…today the Tennessee state legislature did just that.
Aside from the blatant violation of the state and federal constitutions, here’s an unanswered question:
What version? Christians can’t agree on a single interpretation of the bible — let alone a single denomination — so how can politicians do so?
Yet another waste of time and money… and, of course, unconstitutional. So now the good people of Tennessee will see their hard-earned money wasted when the state has to go to court… and lose.
