Take Our Poll: Year of the Bible
Should Pennsylvania's legislature have named 2012 "the Year of the Bible"?
I confess I hadn't heard of this, so I looked it up.
What happened was that Freeman -- and every other member of the house -- voted last month to name 2012 "The Year of the Bible."
According to WGAL out of Harrisburg, the resolution states:
"This nation faces great challenges that will test it as it has never been tested before … and renewing our knowledge of and faith in God through Holy Scripture can strengthen us as a nation and a people..."
As happens anytime God and politics intermingle, this has upset those who want the government away from religion. (There's also the question of whether the legislature should be spending time on stuff like this.)
