    What's next, declaring the state crucifix?

    Justification laid out by article:
    "The very founding of our nation — the very form of government that we have today — was put forth by men of faith, based on their faith, based on what they read in Holy Scripture," he said


    Besides that...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Founding_Fathers_of_the_United_States#Religion
    ...A few prominent Founding Fathers were anti-clerical Christians such as Thomas Jefferson, who constructed the Jefferson Bible, and Benjamin Franklin...

    (and that)

    ...Historian Gregg L. Frazer argues that the leading Founders (Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Wilson, Morris, Madison, Hamilton, and Washington) were neither Christians nor Deists, but rather supporters of a hybrid "theistic rationalism".


    by the logic of "based on what they read" wouldn't that include influences from anything the founding fathers got their hands on. Does that include the porn? I'm assuming the Tenn state porn is something hetero and on all fours?

    Here's some of Jefferson's readings...

    Quintus Curtius Rufus - Roman Historian, c. 50 AD
    ◦ Life of Alexander the Great


    Obviously Jefferson got from that reading all his references used to allude to the future Tennessee state gay warrior.

    How about the rest of his books. Wasn't it his collection which pretty much founded the great Library of Congress? Or does Tennessee think he read just the one book?

    Now let's see what porn Ben used to read....

    Oh, he hardly had even 4000 books. Also, however, not just the one.

    Hey, Tennessee, go fuck yourself.

    Stay tuned for draconian religious freedom legislation in the Nashville statehouse. Once the narrow minded bible thumping screwballs get on a roll, Tennessee will end up exactly like Mississippi.
