South Carolina Legislator Seeks To Give God Credit For State Fossil
A bill to name a state fossil in South Carolina is being delayed while as legislators debate giving God credit for said fossil, and adding words from the book of Genesis.
A bill that recently passed the state House to designate the Columbian Mammoth as the state fossil stalled in the Senate after Republican Senator Kevin Bryant added two verses from the book of Genesis.
That amendment was ruled out of order but senators this week will debate a new amendment that says the mammoth was “created on the sixth day along with the beasts of the field,” Bryant said on Monday.
“I just had a notion that we ought to consider acknowledging the creator as we acknowledge one of his creations,” Bryant said.
