Lawmaker Scraps Plan to Make Bible the Official State Book

Louisiana state Rep. Thomas Carmody (R) "scrapped his proposal to make the Holy Bible the official state book before it could go to a full vote of the state House of Representatives," the New Orleans Times Picayune reports.

"The bill had become a distraction, he said. In introducing the legislation, Carmody always maintained he was not taking steps to establish a state religion, but rather to educate people."
