They called upon God to help us.” Carmody’s bill would make a certain copy of the Bible in state possession the official state book. “The official state book shall be the Holy Bible, published by Johannes Prevel, (Prevel, Jean, active 1510-1528, printer, & Petit, Jean, fl. 1492-1530.), which is the oldest edition of the Holy Bible in the Louisiana State Museum system,” HB 502 outlines. “The use on official documents of the state and with the insignia of the state is hereby authorized.” While the men acknowledge that there will likely be opposition to the measure, they believe that the goal is attainable as Alabama has also …read more Source: Christian News Network     ...
