(US-TN) Tennessee House Passes Resolution to Make Bible Official State Book
Date: 7 April 2021 at 5:11:34 pm AEST

A resolution in the Tennessee Legislature to make the bible the official state book has passed the House  55-28 and now goes to the Senate. The resolution is House Joint Resolution 150. The legislative author is a preacher. The House sponsor has unsuccessfully introduced the same measure as a bill in the previous two sessions. The first time it was vetoed by the then Governor as the Attorney General’s opinion was the bill violated the Establishment Clause of the US Constitution and Article 1, Section 3 of the Tennessee Constitution.

 

The resolution cites the Bible's "great historical and cultural significance in the state of Tennessee as a record of the history of Tennessee families that predates some modern vital statistical records”. The Tennessee State Library and Archives “holds hundreds of family Bible records in several formats and within many collections” because they include “vital records” of births, marriages, and deaths. “These Bibles contain a history of Tennessee families that may not be found otherwise,” the resolution says.  According to the documentation, the Bible has had a significant impact on the State’s economy and has aided in maintaining vital records.
