GOP Lawmaker Wants To Add ‘Almighty God, Our Savior’ To Constitution As ‘Creator’ Of Liberty


A Republican state lawmaker wants a holy change to the constitution of Tennessee.

Republican State Representative James VanHuss wants to make one small change to the constitution of the state of Tennessee. 

"We recognize that our liberties do not come from governments, but from Almighty God, our Creator and Savior."

Rep. VanHuss, who also goes by the name Micah, believes that statement deserves to appear in Article I.

The bill, HJR0071, has five co-sponsors. 

Raw Story reports that "The Tennessean included the legislation in its list of 'bizarre' new bills. 'That reference to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness in the U.S. Constitution isn’t enough for' VanHuss, the paper joked."

On his campaign website, VanHuss says he graduated from Pensacola Christian College, supports traditional marriage, and is "a born again Bible believing Christian."
