I would like to respond to the question "Is a Bible Week proclamation offensive to the Constitution?"
The First Amendment prohibits Congress from making any law respecting an establishment of religion or the free exercise thereof. A proclamation by our governor is not Congress.
First, we should realize that the Bible provides groundwork of the freedoms that we are all blessed with.
Hear what great men of the past have said about the importance of feeding on God's word in contrast with what the elite and the A.C.L.U. have to say.
Abraham Lincoln said: "I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man."All the good from the savior of the world is communicated to us through this book."
George Washington said: "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."
Imanual Kart said: "The existence of the Bible, as a book for the people, is the greatest benefit which the human race has ever experienced and every attempt to belittle it is a crime against humanity."
If these great men put their dependency on God's word, it should behoove us to be as resolute.
