Lawmakers In North Carolina Introduce Bill To Adopt An Official State Religion
Way to go assholes. What part of separation of church and state is not crystal clear ?(CBS Charlotte) Republican lawmakers in the state of North Carolina are pushing to adopt an official state religion that would deem the state exempt from court rulings and, wait for it the Constitution.
House Bill 494 originated out of Rowan County, where two GOP lawmakers (backed by nine other Republicans,) filed the legislation after a lawsuit threatened to prohibit county commissioners in Rowan County from beginning their meeting with a Christian prayer. According to wral.com, the legislation grew out of a dispute between the American Civil Liberties Union and the Rowan County Board of Commissioners. In a federal lawsuit filed last month, the ACLU says the board has opened 97 percent of its meetings since 2007 with explicitly Christian prayers.
