It’s The Year Of The Bible

In a unanimous vote earlier this week, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed a resolution declaring 2012 the "Year of the Bible."

According to H.R. 535, the Penn. House declares "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."

"Any year or every year would be a good choice to recognize the value of the Bible," said State Representative Jerry Stern, one of the sponsors of the resolution. "Our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian values," Rep. Stern noted. "Because of this foundation all other religions may exercise their beliefs or lack thereof of any belief." H.R. 535 passed 193-0.
