Bible and bathrooms covered in late bills.

  • STATE BOOK: Funny, I thought this was it.
Rep. Dwight Tosh wants to make the Bible the state book and Sen. Linda Collins has a bathroom bill for public buildings (once a boy always a boy even if you become Caitlyn). Seems like they could have combined these somehow, like requiring a Bible in each public bathroom.

Bathroom bill here.

Bible bill here. The pertinent part:

WHEREAS, the Bible is considered by many to be a book of truth; and

WHEREAS, the system of law contained within the Bible forms the basis upon which our modern civilization is structured; and

WHEREAS, there are multiple designated state symbols in Arkansas, but there is currently no designated state book; and

WHEREAS, the Bible is widely read throughout the State of Arkansas,

Comment: "Many"? Sounds like apostasy to me.

The Bible, of course, is touted as the state book for its literal historical value, not religious reasons. Just like the graven image the Bully of Bigelow has ready for the Capitol lawn.

When we're done, you know what they'll be saying in Charlotte, N.C.don't you?

Yep.

"Thank God (or whoever) for Arkansas."
