The bill also calls for the president "to issue a proclamation calling upon citizens of all faiths to rediscover and apply the priceless, timeless message of the Holy Scripture which has profoundly influenced and shaped the United States and its great democratic form of government.

CD: It also stands for Great Obstructionist Party. That seems to be its main purpose.
