Holy Bible Could Become Louisiana’s Official Book

The Municipal, Parochial and Cultural Affairs Committee of the Louisiana House of Representatives voted 8-5 last week to forward a measure that would make the Holy Bible the state’s official book. It is scheduled to come to a vote in the full body sometime in the next several days.
