The Constitution says there is a separation between the church and state. We need to have what happened in the dark ages repeat itself. Secondly, if was inclusive of all religions that would be one thing, but because its only on the bible then this is biased and completely unacceptable. We don't need more people to become religiously biased in this country.
Only if there is there is a similar practice established for the recognition of other great works of religious literature. America was founded on religious inclusion not exclusion. However, the funding for any associated costs of this so-called “recognition” needs to be funded by the parishioners/members, with a portion of profit going towards targeted rebuilding of community related infrastructure. In other words if the hard right wants national recognition, their religious leaders will need not only need to pick up the tab; they will be required to contribute to the rebuilding of public infrastructures that support their followers.
