I am all for Christianity...but this isn’t a good idea...An official book walks right up to that establishment line, in my opinion...

But that's kind of the point. Congress can't establish a religion. State can do what it likes. Furthermore, Louisiana is not establishing a religion; it is naming a state book (just like a state bird, flower, or tree). I think this illuminates the limits of Federal power brilliantly. I hope it succeeds.

( "The Congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools.")
You may be right, but at least these lawmakers are taking a stand on what they believe. There was a time when the Bible was THE textbook in the school and law was patterned after the Ten Commandments (not the ten suggestions). Now look what we have. . . a society out of control and unless God performs a miracle after much repentance from the citizens of our country. . then as my grandfather use to say, “that’s all she wrote”.
