Tennessee state Rep. James VanHuss (R) introduced a resolution that would add a new line to the state constitution acknowledging God, The Tennessean reported.

House Joint Resolution 71 would add a line reading, “We recognize that our liberties do not come from governments, but from Almighty God, our Creator and Savior.”

VanHuss’ colleague, Rep. Jerry Sexton (R) also introduced a bill last week that would make the Holy Bible the state book.
