PA. Year of the Bible Resolution Stands

A resolution passed by lawmakers in Pennsylvania will be allowed to stand after a lawsuit was filed to have it rescinded. The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) filed the lawsuit in hopes that a judge would throw out the resolution as unconstitutional. But a U.S. Middle District Judge said lawmakers have the right to pass such a measure. Though the judge disagrees with the measure he still recognizes the right of lawmakers to pass the resolution. A recent article states: “The ‘Year of the Bible’ resolution was passed in Jan. 2012 and declared the Christian Bible to be of ‘formative influence’ on the founding of the United States.” Despite critics claims and liberals attempts to re-write history, there is no doubt that the Bible indeed played a central role in the founding of our country and formation of our founding documents. Considering several signers of the Constitution were ordained pastors, most of those signers had Bible or seminary degrees, and nearly all of them were committed Christians, the Bible is at the heart of everything America was intended to be.
