Marty Cooper - OneNewsNow - 5/26/2009 4:00:00 AM A Georgia congressman is introducing a bill to make 2010 the "Year of the Bible." Representative Paul Broun (R-Georgia) has gathered 15 co-sponsors to mimic Ronald Reagan's endeavors when, in 1983, he instituted a "Year of the Bible" with the approval of Congress. None of the bill's current co-sponsors are Democrats, but they are not the only opposition Broun faces. According to Politico.com, congressional Jews and atheist activists are dismissing the resolution. Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts), a Jew, mocked the idea by asking, "Does that mean 2009 is not the year of the Bible? What is 2012 the year of? The Quran?" However, many atheists are not bothered by Broun's efforts, citing the latest Pew Forum survey which says non-religious Americans are the fastest growing demographic. One atheist believes what he calls "this kind of old-style George W. Bush Republicanism" will soon die out. Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-New York) says he is not against the Bible or the resolution, but simply believes the bill endorses religion and adds that the federal government should stay out of such matters. Broun claims the bill actually has nothing to do with Christianity. He is simply urging Americans to return to the biblical foundation that he contends established and built America.
