NASHVILLE — Tennessee is poised to make history as the first state in the nation to recognize the Holy Bible as its official book.
After nearly 30 minutes of debate, the state Senate on Monday approved the measure, sponsored by Sen. Steve Southerland, R-Morristown, with a 19-8 vote, sending the legislation to Gov. Bill Haslam’s desk.
While proponents stressed the historic significance of the holy book and its religious meaning, opponents argue that the bill trivializes something they hold sacred.
Both Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris told The Tennessean last week that they expected the measure to be given approval in the Senate, despite their opposition.

STAND BY FOR THE LIBERAL DEMOCRAT SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE B.S.!
When will America learn that America was FOUNDED on CHRISTIAN principals and by Christians? The LIBERALS always bring up this BOGUS argument of 'SEPARATION of Church & STATE'. That's NOWHERE in our Constitution. It is only found in some Thomas Jefferson (Unitarian) comments. Jefferson's musings holds NO water whatsoever.
