Well, It’s Never Had Bad Consequences in the Past

A bill filed by Republican lawmakers would allow the state to declare an official religion, in violation of the Establishment Clause of the US Bill of Rights, and seeks to nullify any federal ruling against Christian prayer by public bodies in North Carolina.  

The GOP has been in power three months.

  1. “The GOP has been in power three months”

    I know! What took them so long? Only the sheer power of Sharia law in NC can explain it, amiright?

  2. …on a more serious note, according to the linked news story, the bill in question is far more radical than your summary claims: it denies judicial review entirely — so long, Marbury v. Madison! Not to mention (cough, cough) Brown v. Board of education.

    But wait! There’s more! They also deny the other branches of the Federal government the right to determine the constitutionality of legislation.

    Frankly, this may not be an act of succession, but frankly, it’s pretty damn close. I’m not saying they’ll take it as far as last time — this isn’t South Carolina we’re talking about. But still, that’s some grade A+ wacko thinking, and I’ll not have you slander them by implying it’s only A-level wacko work.

    • I highlighted that part on Twitter. So crazy. And this is only the first three months of a projected ten-year reign in the state.
