Lawmakers In North Carolina Introduce Bill To Adopt An Official State Religion

(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.
Way to go assholes. What part of separation of church and state is not crystal clear ?

amazing what a lack of Education on the part of the citizenry will bring forth
Yeah, I was thing something along those lines. Traditionally this state has a history of anti-education. Ex Senator Jesse Helms voted down almost every education bill. Looks like the GOP's aggressive vilifying of education is paying off for them as current republican lawmakers appear to have no previous knowledge of the Constitution.

This state just really fails to grasp that part of the constitution. One of our local politicians also is an active executive at Samaritans Purse. Of course he claims there is no conflict of interest but the Grahams control that bitch like a little puppet.

Not true and kind of offensive bro. I'm not going to neg rep you for the comment because we do have our fair share of mouth-breathers, but we also have plenty of transplants that are Neanderthals as well.

well i stand corrected, bro. Nationally ranked, NC is in fact above the 50th percentile. Barely. 21/50 with a C+ grade of 77.7. You actually managed to squeak by the national average by 8/10 of a point!

13th, b!tches. Although I'm extremely suspect of any list on "education" that has Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Jersey, West Virginia and Kentucky in the top 10. :think:
statistics can say anything you want them to.

THe only thing I can really take away from it is that the american education system as a whole and in general is total crap.

From the party that brought you lower taxes and smaller government.....

A bill filed in the N.C. Senate Tuesday has some UNC students concerned about their ability to vote in future elections.

Senate Bill 667, also known as “Equalize Voter Rights,” would force voting students to travel home or vote absentee — or see their parents face higher taxes.

The bill prevents parents from claiming college students as dependents in the state income tax if their child is registered to vote at his or her college address.

Critics of the bill, sponsored by six Republican senators, say it is a move to suppress college voters.

That is gold.
We need more of "you's guys" to polish off this Korea project with all of that book-learnin' and pleasant demeanor.

Plus...and I have no idea why anyone hasn't pointed this out yet, we have a lottery! ....A lottery, y'all! So, we must be getting smarter because we're throwing money at the problem, right?
