You know Ivan I appreciate your point that the founders were reverent of a Creator. Maybe even The Bible as well. Yes they gave a nod to God at the birth of the Country. But that said there is a bit of a leap in representing then that The Bible represents the Word of The Creator any more than perhaps Broun should also consider that the Koran, or The Book of the Dead, or the Book of Mormon, or any of a number of other faith-foundational references might also be held in equal reverence by their respective Religions. That The Bible would be accorded some special recognition separate from other documents and other religions? That puts them well into conflict with the Establishment Clause, if only symbolically.IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
I think Congress would be better served sticking to honoring wildflowers and birds and fixing the economy and reforming healthcare.
I'd guess that the reason for this bill has more to do with Obama downgrading the observance of National Prayer Day with any official event than anything else. The bill was filed on National Prayer Day.
