Get Ready for the Year of the Bible

Instead of doing actual work for the benefit of all Americans, Republicans in Congress are pandering to Christian extremists with H. Con. Res. 121, a measure to designate 2010 as the "Year of the Bible". I'll assume that they are referring to one of the many translations of the Christian bible and are simply too caught up in Christian privilege to say so. In any case, 14 Republicans are pushing the unconstitutional resolution.

I agree wholeheartedly with The Progressive Puppy on this one:
Fourteen Republican lawmakers with apparently too much time on their hands and no solutions to offer the country are pushing a resolution that will not address the nation's problems or advance prosperity or even untangle their previous governing mistakes. Indeed, the only voters who will be impressed by this shallow piece of congressional theatre are the religious fundies who once hallelujahed George W. Bush into office.
Regardless of whatever setbacks Christian extremists have recently suffered, it is clear that they still have political allies willing to fight for their deluded agenda.
