Senator Manny Pacquiao is known for his religious beliefs, thus it is not surprising that just this Wednesday he filed a proposal to make every last Monday of January 'National Bible Day'.
“As a predominantly Christian nation and the largest Christian nation in the Asia Pacific, this Act recognizes the value of the Holy Bible as the core of Christian faith,” the bill said.
“The last Monday of January and every year thereafter is hereby declared as a ‘National Bible Day Act’ and proclaim the same as a national holiday,” it added.
“This bill seeks to boldly emphasize the holiness of The Living Truth by allotting a holiday for its celebration on every last Monday of January, which shall be known as ‘National Bible Day,’” Pacquiao said.
“This calls for all Christians to altogether unite and celebrate the Holy Bible as the cradle of the Christian faith,” he added. [source]
