Tennessee Senate Kills Bible Bill; Majority Leader Claims Satan “Loves This Kind of Mischief”

Just on the heels of the Attorney General saying it would be unconstitutional, the Tennessee Senate has killed a bill that would make the Holy Bible the official state book.

For now.

State Senator Mark Norris

Bolstered by opposition from Republican leadership, the Senate voted 22-9 to kill the Bible bill a day after it was adopted by the House.

“This isn’t the time or place now in the full Senate floor to delve into that, we really need to look into it in committee,” said Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris, R-Collierville, about two hours before the vote.

“I sure hope it won’t pass. I think it’ll be a dark day for Tennessee if it does,” Norris said Wednesday.

“All I know is that I hear Satan snickering. He loves this kind of mischief. You just dumb the good book down far enough to make it whatever it takes to make it a state symbol, and you’re on your way to where he wants you.”

So it’s in committee thanks to a guy who think passing the bill would please Satan too much.

And here I thought there were no rational politicians in that state…

You can expect the bill to be reintroduced next year.
