Tennessee Passes Bill Naming the Bible Its Official “State Book”

What a pathetic spectacle these superstition-bound and totally worthless “White leaders” make; as their race is being exterminated, they rush to venerate the “holy book” written by the genocidal killers of their own people, all to win the votes of the terminally ignorant.

The bill, which had previously passed the state House of Representatives, was approved by the state Senate by a 19-8 vote on Monday. It now goes to Republican Gov. Bill Haslam to be signed or vetoed.

The bill’s sponsor, Republican state Sen. Steve Southerland, said he doesn’t believe it runs afoul of the federal and state constitutions, which call for separation of church and state.

“The Holy Bible is a history book,” Southerland said, noting he’d been told that by a Jewish friend.

The legislation has been condemned by the American Civil Liberties Union. Hedy Weinberg, the executive director of ACLU Tennessee, said in a statement, “We are disappointed that Tennessee lawmakers have voted to use their official positions to promote their personal religious beliefs.”

But some Tennessee opposition came from the right. Republican state Sen. Ferrell Haile opposed the measure because he thought the bill would cheapen the Bible. “The Bible is a book of history, but it is not a history book to be placed on the shelf,” he said.

The 19 senators who voted to pass the bill included 17 Republicans and two Democrats. Six Republicans and 2 Democrats voted against the measure, with four Republicans and one Democrat abstaining.

It’s unclear whether Haslam will sign the bill or veto it. When the measure was proposed last year, critics noted that it appeared to violate the Tennessee Constitution, which states that “no preference shall ever be given, by law, to any religious establishment or mode of worship.”

Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, a Republican who voted against the bill, said he wasn’t sure whether enough senators would be willing to overturn a possible veto by Haslam.

Tennessee isn’t the first state to consider naming the Bible an official state book. A similar bill was proposed in Louisiana in 2014, but ended up being pulled by its sponsor.

Last year, two Democratic lawmakers in Mississippi proposed a similar bill, but it hasn’t gone anywhere yet.

It’s rare for any state to designate an official state book. Massachusetts boasts an official state children’s book, “Make Way for Ducklings,” and state children’s author, Dr. Seuss. There was a brief attempt to make “Moby-Dick” the Bay State’s official book, but it failed.

If Haslam signs the legislation, the Bible would join other Tennessee state symbols including the passion flower (state wildflower), the tomato (state fruit), the raccoon (state wild animal) and the Barrett M82/M107 (state rifle).

    The Bible is a history book?

    First off, the original Jew “Bible” was the “Torah,” the five books of law god gave to Moses, not written by anyone named “Moses.”

    The rest of the Old Testament and later offshoots, like the Mishna, Midrash, Talmud and New Testament Gospels, are merely elaboration on those first five books of law.

    The noun is actually a description of the book’s purpose. The word “Torah has a dual meaning of both “instruction” and “law.” So to Jews the title of the Torah clearly indicates it is a book of “legal instruction.”

    There is a Jewish joke about a yeled who hides under his parents bed to listen to them have sex. (This IS a Jewish joke after all) When his rabbi father hears a noise, he furiously drags the yeled out from under the bed and begins thrashing him for spying. The yeled cries out, “Wait, wait, father you don’t understand, it’s Torah!” That is the yeled is “learning” and it aint’ about history.

    Note, there is no indication of historical reference anywhere in the title. This makes sense, as Jew’s themselves claim the Torah was the law given to Moses by their god on some long forgotten mountain. This idea was later reprised by Joseph Smith who claimed to have received god’s word from a moronic angel.

    Thus the Torah, a book on which all other Judaeo-Christian books are based, has nothing to do with history and everything to do with law. In fact, the stories set legal precedence for sacrificial law. The story of Cain and Abel sets the legal precedence for the meat sacrifice over the grain sacrifice. The story of Abraham’s sacrifice of Isaac sets the legal precedence for substituting an animal sacrifice for child sacrifice.

    The Bible is all about law, Jewish law, not Jewish history. This is made evident by the total absence of any other historical references or archeological evidence that support Old Testament stories. If the Bible is a history book, it’s a history that no other ancient culture of those times ever heard or knew of.
