    Louisiana lawmakers advance bill that would make the Bible the state’s official book

    Louisiana lawmakers advance bill that would make the Bible the state

    Rep. Thomas Carmody (R) said he sponsored the proposal at the request of a constituent but insisted that the bill wasn’t designed to be a state-endorsement of Christianity.
    “It’s not to the exclusion of anyone else’s sacred literature,” he told the House committee. He added, “This is not about establishing an official religion of the state of Louisiana.”
    A quick trick to see if this actually an endorsement is to substitute another religion's sacred text as the official state book and poll the legislature.
    What an enormous waste of time and money.

    Who suggested the idea I wonder...

    This has to be a parody. No one is actually dumb enough to try this...

    Surely Green Eggs and Ham would suit your average citizen of Louisiana better than the Bible.

    And all the little pigs have God

    Based on this, it would be a little advanced for them. Louisiana, taking over from SC for most embarrassing state in the union.

    I thought that title was previously held by NJ; they actually wanted Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run to be the official state song even though it was a song about getting the **** out of NJ.

    Yet only some morons choose to do so in, literally, biblical proportions.

    Sorry but no.

    Fundamentalists are trying to create a theocracy akin to Saudi Arabia with the same style of controls on thoughts, actions and dress.
