This resolution is in the first step in the legislative process. Introduced bills and resolutions first go to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. The majority of bills and resolutions never make it out of committee.
Recommending a vote against it in 1874, the House Judiciary Committee cited "the dangers which the union between church and state had imposed upon so many nations of the Old World...."
Allies of the Religious Right used the occasion as a chance to attack church-state separation. Rep J. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) again introduced the same tired resolution he introduced last year affirming that the “religious foundations of faith on which America was built…[are] inseparable for America’s representative processes, legal systems, and societal structures.”In other words, Forbes thinks there is no separation between religion and government.Forbes claimed that the resolution will be a successful bipartisan effort but in fact, it most likely will not even see debate on the House floor. The “bipartisan” support includes 32 registered Republican cosponsors and one Democratic representative Mike McIntyre of North Carolina.
