Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen, who is a Republican if you can believe that, suggested this week (while explaining her vote for a bill that would allow people to carry guns basically everywhere) that Arizona lawmakers should debate a bill to force citizens to attend church on Sunday. You can’t make this stuff up.
Republican Arizona Senator Sylvia Allen suggested this week that lawmakers should debate forcing people to attend church services once a week.
Allen acknowledged such a law would never be allowed, but floated as an idea to create what she described as a much-needed “moral rebirth of this country.”
“How we get to back to a moral rebirth of this country, I don’t know, since we are slowly eroding religion at every opportunity that we have,” Allen said. “Probably we should be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth.”
Sylvia Allen also believes the Earth is 6,000 years old, and therefore we don’t need any environmental laws to regulate uranium mining.
And Allen believes strongly in the whacked out far right “Agenda 21” conspiracy theory, and thinks it’s replacing the US Constitution with a commie government. Yes, she really does.
This has been your daily glimpse at how insane the Republican Party has become.
