Bible Could Soon Join Milk as State Symbol in Tennessee

Tennessee could become the first state in U.S. history to recognize the Holy Bible as its official state book after the state Senate voted 19-8 on a measure to do just that and sent it to the desk of Republican Gov. Bill Haslam for his signature.

The bill sponsored by Sen. Steve Southerland, R-Morristown was approved after 30 minutes of debate in the state Senate on Monday, according to The Tennessean.

Both Haslam and state Attorney General Herbert Slatery have previously raised questions about the constitutionality of the bill. Proponents have emphasized the historic significance of the Bible and its religious meaning while opponents charge that the bill trivializes something they hold sacred. Click Link Below for More.
