TENNESSEE: GOP Bill Would Amend State Constitution To Declare That God Is The Source Of All Liberty

The Associated Press reports:

Tennessee lawmakers are considering legislation to amend the state constitution to say that God is the source of liberties for the state’s citizens. The House Civil Justice Subcommittee voted Wednesday to advance the measure sponsored by Republican Rep. Micah Van Huss of Jonesborough. The bill failed in the same subcommittee last month. But the panel agreed to a motion to reconsider it. The proposed addition to the Tennessee Constitution would read: “We recognize that our liberties do not come from governments, but from almighty God.”

Van Huss is a graduate of Pensacola Christian College. From their code of conduct:

The Bible indicates that all sexual activity outside of marriage is sin. Therefore, the following is considered to be sexually immoral: fornication, adultery, homosexual behavior, or any other sexual perversion. Also, any involvement in pornography or sexual communications, including verbal, written, or electronic, are prohibited. The seductive nature and worldly music of most forms of dancing are contrary to biblical principles. PCC wants students to have a wholesome relationship with members of the opposite gender without the temptations that are often associated with dancing, so dancing is not permitted.
