Tennessee plan to make Bible 'official' book derailed


... Despite those problems, House lawmakers on Wednesday voted 55-38 in favor of the plan. On Thursday, the proposal was derailed when the Senate voted 22-9 to send it back to a committee that has been closed, effectively killing it for the year.

Some legislators may have felt compelled to support the measure or face political repercussions down the road ...

:facepalm: ... :wow:

IMO, this would be the first step in saying that you have to live "your" life according to how I (the supporters of this measure) see it. Why can't they let those that want to be believe do so, and those that don't do so? Who, and what says that ther way is the right way? And lets be honest, looking at the recent events concerning the few that preach the word, IMO are in no position to point the finger of immorality at anyone.

No one, not even believers can live their life according to the bible if they didn't cherry pick.

This is why I said that this is a slippery slope:
Arizona lawmaker wants church attendance to be mandatory

But the Republican detailed a solution that she believed would keep people feeling safe without the need to carry a gun. No matter how much it would violate the Constitution seperation of church and state, Allen said she wanted a law requiring citizens to go to church.
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/pol...church-attendance-mandatory-article-1.2164602

Now, ask yourself; what is the penalty for not going? You have a family, and you need extra money to help ends meet, so you work on a Sunday, is it right you should be criminalized for looking out for your family?

So we have (2) actions dealing with trying to shoehorn people into religion. So what will be next?

Peace!
