Thank you

"From the WVLT VOLUNTEER TV Newsroom:

The Knox County Commission has voted 10-9 to withdraw the so-called "God Resolution." The resolution recognizes God as the foundation of American heritage and government. It has already been adopted in several other East Tennessee counties."
Link and more info when it's available online.

UPDATE: Commissioners table God resolution (Knoxville News Sentinel: 11/17/03, by Michael Silence)

"Knox County commissioners today essentially killed the God resolution by voting in a narrow margin to withdraw it from the agenda.

The vote brought a standing ovation from some people in the half-filled auditorium, most there to see what would happen on the issue."


Shortly after the meeting began, Commissioner Diane Jordan moved that the resolution be withdrawn. Several commissioners called for the question, ending debate, and Jordan's motion passed 10-to-9.

Joining Jordan in voting to withdraw it were Thomas "Tank" Strickland Jr., David Collins, Billy Tindell, Wanda Moody, John Schmid, Phil Guthe, Mike Arms, John Griess and Mary Lou Horner.

Voting against withdrawal were Ivan Harmon, Craig Leuthold, Mark Cawood, Larry Stephens, Scott Moore, Mike McMillan, John Mills, Larry Clark and Howard Pinkston.
Remember this list next election day...
