It was not Iowa's HoR, it was the U.S. Government that passed this. I read the statute and am led to wonder whether it creates civil or criminal liability for Christians who fail to adhere to Christian teachings. As a Christian, I'd like to think that the Federal Government is not the arbiter of how closely I adhere to my Faith's principals. I'm pretty sure that was part of the problem accross the pond about 300 years ago. I'm also pretty sure final Judgment on matters of faith doesn't rest with Alberto Gonzales, the federal judiciary, et. al.

Maybe now Republicans can at least stop worrying about all those secularists and the war against Christmas, since there is a Federal Statute recognizing it. Of course, I assume the gentleman from Iowa will be introducing similar resolutions recognizing Judaism, Hindi, Buddhisim, Sikkhs, Islam, etc., Right?

Holy Jeebus! Tripp is right! It's not just Iowa, it's a U.S. House Resolution!

A waste of taxpayer dollars AND a violation of the separation of church and state. Two for the price of one!

Shit on all the others! I want to see them have a day recognizing that reigion in Utah, and I'm not making this up, that considers auto erotic stimulation a sacrament.

By the way, the name of the religion I referred to previously is called Summom.
