Talking Points Memo: Tennessee lawmakers vote to make bible the official state book

Senate Democratic Caucus Chairman Jeff Yarbro questions making the Holy Bible the state's official book.

Senator Jeff Yarbro questioned why the legislation highlights the economic impact of Bible publishing in the state, or that Bibles were traditionally used to track family histories.

"I don't think that's why we read the Bible, I don't think that's why we send our kids to vacation Bible school," Yarbro said. "To those of us who grew up in this faith, it is so much more."
