Tennessee Just Did Something That Has Liberals Everywhere HOWING

By

The election of Donald Trump to the presidency has unleashed a wave of conservatism the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the Reagan years.

Across the nation, individuals, cities and entire states are starting to take conservative stands that they’d been afraid to take in more recent years.

For instance, the State of Tennessee just took the bold and unprecedented step of nominating the Bible as the state’s “official book.”

The New York Post reports:

Having already made a .50-caliber sniper gun the official state rifle, Tennessee lawmakers on Monday gave final approval to making the Holy Bible the state’s official book.

The state Senate voted 19-8 in favor of the bill despite arguments by the state attorney general that the measure conflicts with a provision in the Tennessee Constitution stating that “no preference shall ever be given, by law, to any religious establishment or mode of worship.”

Opponents argued the Bible would be trivialized by being placed alongside other state symbols such as the official tree, flower, rock or amphibian. But both chambers of the Legislature brushed aside those concerns to send the bill to the desk of Republican Gov. Bill Haslam. He opposes the measure but hasn’t said whether he’ll issue a veto.

Naturally, local liberals were HOWLING:

Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the ACLU of Tennessee, called on Haslam to veto the Bible bill. She called it a “thinly veiled effort to promote one religion over other religions [that] clearly violates both the United States and Tennessee Constitutions.”

But Tennessee is a staunchly conservative state, so there’s a high chance this bill will be approved, and at least one state in our union will officially recognize the AUTHORITY of the Bible.
