Just another reason why the Republicans are out of power.
Right-wing Republican lawmaker named Paul Broun from the Deep South that happens to be a Baptist wants to declare 2010 the 'Year Of The Bible'.
Luckily the majority of Congress is ignoring this foolish proposal and a few has spoke out and even joked about it.


http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0509/22832.html

quote from Congressman Broun;
“This doesn’t have anything to do with Christianity,”

 Wow!


Other members of Congress speak out;

“Does that mean 2009 is not the year of the Bible?” mocked Rep. Barney Frank ­(D-Mass.), who is Jewish. “What is 2012 the year of? The Quran?”

“That’s an endorsement of religion by the federal government, and we shouldn’t be doing that,” said Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.)

Using religion to further divide the US is not going to help anyone. Move along idiot.

I can't believe how many bible thumpers are in congress who violate this on a daily basis. Heck we've declared war on religious fanatics yet this country is run by religious fanatics too. How hypocritical  Yeah sure

Agreed!
That says a lot about the 'new ideas' and 'image makeover' for the Republican Party.
More specifically, says a lot about the average intellect of those in Eastern Georgia.

From time to time, representatives have to do something to try and remind their constituents that there is actually a point to having them in office, and that they're not just wasting space. This is just one of those times.  sigh

I agree. The separation of the church and state should continue.

Fine with me. I want stuff too you know. He wants 2010 to be year of the bible, I want this guy to refund the tax dollars used to pay his salary.

I mean, jesus de christo, do you really have nothing better to do with your time in Congress? Are all of our nation's problems fixed?

I love this guy's rationale for explaining how this has nothing to do with Christianity-

Quote:
“This doesn’t have anything to do with Christianity,” he said in an interview with POLITICO. Rather, he says, it seeks to recognize that the Bible played an integral role in the building of the United States, including providing the basis for our freedom of religion that allows Muslims, Hindus and even atheists to vocalize their own beliefs.

Gee I don't suppose the Constitution had anything to do with that, did it? I have a proposal that might be a nice change of pace for the Republicans in Congress. How about the "Year of the Constitution" where no legislator or political leader on any side of aisle introduces legislation that violates the Constitution in the name of "security" or "fighting terrorism", etc?

...though if we did that, then they would just waste all that time introducing stupid, pointless, rhetorical resolutions that don't solve any real problems. Oh wait...

I love when people use the word "Liberty" as a weapon.
