Much media attention is going to Georgia Republican Congressman Paul Broun who is trying to make the Bible Bill into law.

This controversial proposal would make 2010 the "Year of the Bible." American atheists are not too worried about the Bible Bill passing as they claim that atheism is on the rise and are therefore unfazed.

"The Bible is the best selling book of all time, as Broun notes as a valid reason for implementing the “Year of the Bible,” although what that has to do with anything, one cannot be sure. By his logic we should also have the “Year of Harry Potter” to celebrate how it has impacted the lives of those who have read the series. It has, after all, turned an entire younger generation into bibliophiles, so perhaps Broun should seriously consider this as his next legislative bill."
