The pertinent part:
WHEREAS, the Bible is considered by many to be a book of truth; and
WHEREAS, the system of law contained within the Bible forms the basis upon which our modern civilization is structured; and
WHEREAS, there are multiple designated state symbols in Arkansas, but there is currently no designated state book; and
WHEREAS, the Bible is widely read throughout the State of Arkansas,

When we're done, you know what they'll be saying in Charlotte, N.C.don't you?
"Thank God (or whoever) for Arkansas."
