Lee said he prays that Tennessee does not experience a school shooting, that the state’s opioid epidemic will diminish and that Tennessee’s educational outcomes improve. If thousands of people offer similar prayers, he believes God will impart his favor on Tennessee.
The governor’s remarks came during a luncheon at the Southern Baptist Convention’s Nashville headquarters.
So far God has not seen fit to impart his favor onto the state. In Tennessee, a gun or threat is reported at school every 3 days. Tennessee is ranked as one of the least educated states in the country. It has the 17th highest opioid overdose death rate in the country. West Virginia is #1, OHIO! is #2.
Compare the least educated states with the Bible Belt States!
