House Resolution 535 in Pennsylvania, sponsored by Rep. Rick Saccone (R-obviously), declares:
That the House of Representatives declare 2012 as the “Year of the Bible” in Pennsylvania in recognition of both the formative influence of the Bible on our Commonwealth and nation and our national need to study and apply the teachings of the holy scriptures.
Right… because we have a “national need” to understand Genesis, genocide, and all the other bullshit in the Bible.
