(MYFOXPHILLY) — A national group of atheists and agnostics is suing Pennsylvania lawmakers for declaring 2012 as "the Year of the Bible."
Freedom From Religion Foundation filed a federal lawsuit on Monday, challenging the constitutionality of the Pennsylvania House’s declaration that 2012 is “The Year of the Bible."
"The plaintiff seeks a declaration under 28 USC §2201 that the Year of the Bible Resolution violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution," the group claims in its lawsuit.

The group says the resolution was tantamount to the Commonwealth "endorsing a state-sanctioned religion."
