"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."
The resolution's method of "affirming the rich spiritual and religious history" involves a great deal of misrepresentation, as Rodda demonstrates. He analyzes many of the resolution's 75 "whereas" statements, some of which are sourced to prominent Christianist pseudo-historians David Barton and William Federer, and expounds upon the errors in HR 888's treatment of: the Founders' biblical citations, the history of the Liberty Bell, and deity references in state constitutions. Rodda also corrects errors in their use of quotations from Adams, Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, JFK, and even Herbert Hoover.
This resolution is a nightmare, and Rodda suggests the following action be taken:
Let your representative know that if they do not oppose this resolution, they will either be demonstrating their own lack of knowledge of our country's history, or, worse yet, will be admitting that they are willing to be complicit in the perpetuation of lies in order to further the Christian nationalist agenda.
On a lighter note, this Cectic comic strip tackles the same legislative inanity from a humorous perspective:
