Congress could entertain the possibility of passing this bill, House resolution 397, as early as next week. The text of the bill can be found through the link:
Basically the premise of the bill is to set up the first week of May as “American Religious History Week,” and would supposedly do this: “Affirming the rich spiritual and religious history of our Nation’s founding and subsequent history and expressing support for designation of the first week in May as `American Religious History Week’ for the appreciation of and education on America’s history of religious faith.”
Sounds fairly benign, right? Read further.

I can’t support this at all. I think it would turn into a shoving-religion-down-peoples’-throats, “Christianity is the One True Way” Week. And that, in my opinion, goes against the many religious freedoms we have in this country.
