American Religious History Week

On December 18, 2007, Representative Randy Forbes (R-VA) introduced H.Res. 888, to designate the first week in May as American Religious History Week. The purpose of this Resolution is to affirm the rich, spiritual and religious history of our nation's founding and subsequent history, and to show appreciation of and education on America's history of religious faith.

This Resolution recognizes and acknowledges America's religious foundations rather than promoting attempts to remove or obscure such history from our schools and the public square. The full text of the Resolution can be read at http://thomas.loc.gov.

Currently, this Resolution is before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. A complete list of the Committee members can be found at http://oversight.house.gov/about/members.asp.
