Heritage is a bludgeon

This is very well put:

Times are changing in Tennessee. While the Bible remains a valued spiritual guide — the Word of God — to many people living in the state, attempts to make it the official state book are more about heritage than history. Heritage uses the past as a bludgeon. It gives the past political power and moral authority in the present that it was never meant to have. Heritage is more concerned with exclusion than inclusion.
