Is the state religion going to be “Judeo-Christian” or are they dropping that fig leaf?

Please be Islam.
This would teach their citizens the importance of the separation of church and state.

Maybe we should let the hillbilly states go. We can expel their ignorant reps from congress, dynamite the roads, lay down some razor wire, and end all economic interaction with the United States. They won’t have to pay federal taxes anymore, and won’t receive any federal support. They’ll get to not have a black president, and we’ll get to not have wingnuts in congress.

We can set up an underground railroad to help reasonable people escape the ex-states.

I’m voting for the Cthulhu Cult. I realize it is illegal for me to vote in North Carolina, but so is this bill.

North Carolina Republicans are pretty much like South Carolina Republicans: Unreconstructed Confederate bigots.

This is really scary, especially when you view it in conjunction with this piece posted a day or two ago… Pastor to Rabbi, Imam: U.S. Is a ‘Christian Nation’ but We ‘Let’ You Worship Religious Tolerance is all well and good, as long it’s various versions of Christianity that we tolerate, but as soon as you start bringing in the idea of those “Other” types (i.e. UN-GODLY by their definitions) like Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and others then watch them change their tune. Jews get something of a pass, simply because they have to be around for when the end of the world occurs.

A number of people on the RW Blog / Forum networks will steadfastly maintain that “ISLAM is not a religion, it’s a political system that wants to control society”. And gee, 7 Mountains Dominionism isn’t?

State Religion HUH ? I thought all these Tea Party /Conservative /Republicans were avowed lovers of the Constitution .
So how could any of them possibly support a “State sponsered religion “?
The civil war never really ended , now we’re hearing about Nullification . Sound familiar ?

United States Constitution calling North Carolina: The first amendment does apply to state and local governments. That was established by section one of the fourteenth amendment. Also, section five of the fourteenth amendment says that the US congress can enforce this.

I am sick not only to death, but also to zombie resurrection and getting my undead head splattered by shotgun, of hearing these theocratic throwbacks tell us what the constitution says when they clearly haven’t read it themselves.

In case any of you bible thumpers are actually reading this, here are links to the original text, the bill of rights, and the rest of the amendments respectively. If anyone is confused by how the bill of rights was originally written, thats because the third article is the first amendment, the fourth article is the second amendment, and so on. The first article was never ratified, and the second article is the twenty seventh amendment because it took until 1992 to ratify it.

The point is this s*** is all in the public domain. There is no excuse for you to not read it before you claim to know what it says.

This is what happens in states that have been gerrymandered to the point that no incumbent is ever at risk in an election. They’re just going to keep going farther and farther to the right until they fall off the edge of the flat earth.

These idiots failed US govt/civics 101. They ignore that the Supremacy Clause governs and that the 14th Amendment Due Process clause apply to the states and localities.

BTW, here’s the most current version of this idiocy from the NC Legislative website.

SECTION 1. The North Carolina General Assembly asserts that the Constitution of the United States of America does not prohibit states or their subsidiaries from making laws respecting an establishment of religion.

SECTION 2. The North Carolina General Assembly does not recognize federal court rulings which prohibit and otherwise regulate the State of North Carolina, its public schools, or any political subdivisions of the State from making laws respecting an establishment of religion.

SECTION 3. This resolution is effective upon ratification.

These folks would like to take the country back more than 100 years to a point in time when the Bill of Rights didn’t apply to states and localities (in other words, a time before the Due Process Clause was used to apply the Bill of Rights to state action and not just against the federal government).

Now, it also seems that the NC legislators also seem to ignore that their own state constitution would prohibit establishment too.

Sec. 13. Religious liberty.
All persons have a natural and inalienable right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences, and no human authority shall, in any case whatever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience.

Attempting to establish a state religion would violate this provision too, since it would interfere with the right of worship or give preferential treatment of one religious group over others.
