Via Anomaly at FreakOutNation:

Tennessee State Rep. Jerry Sexton (R-Y’all Qaeda) wants to add the Bible to the state symbols of Tennessee. The Bible would be “designated as the official state book” if his proposal passes.

Because, focusing on poverty, health care and the economy in Tennessee isn’t as important as making the poverty-stricken state appear to be a Christian-only state, apparently. That’s what’s really important, huh?[su_center_ad]

    I forget… Was it Matthew, Mark, Luke or John who was the famous author that resided in Tennessee?

    So Tennessee wants a book written by Middle East foreigners to be the State book…OK, but you might be opening the door to Sharia Law.

      Muslims believe that Jesus is a Muslim prophet. That door/flap tent to Sharia Law is about to have the proverbial “camel’s nose” protrude. lol

    They’d be better off finding a comic book that even the state leaders could read and understand.
    The bible is a book of fairy tales and fantasies, hardly worth such an honor.

      I consider the Bible to be an extremely important book for its religious and literary value, but I also consider that it’s inappropriate to designate it as a state book, and that it would be a clear violation of the First Amendment’s establishment clause.

        Exactly, it sets a dangerous precedent.

        sure if you want a book that has almost nothing to do with America
        Tennessee must be filled with mental midgets who couldn’t tell the difference between a dictionary and a law book

      They are going to get extra coloring books from the Bush Library

    I said these teabaggers who try and make their own little theocratic dump right here in America.

    Every conservative lawmaker knows that it is much better for their electorate to pray for things like health, prosperity and peace rather than expect any consideration of such.

    why not go with a ‘Cat in the Hat’ type book? There’s all sorts of words that rhyme with Tennessee –
