A state religion in North Carolina?

Republican legislators in North Carolina want to declare an official state religion as a way of nullifying court rulings that prohibit prayer by public entities.

From the Huffington Post:

The bill, filed Monday by two GOP lawmakers from Rowan County and backed by nine other Republicans, says each state “is sovereign” and courts cannot block a state “from making laws respecting an establishment of religion.” The legislation was filed in response to a lawsuit to stop county commissioners in Rowan County from opening meetings with a Christian prayer, wral.com reported.

Even if NC is wrong...


We are a republic, therefore we need to respect and defend the rights of the minorities....Also there is a Amendment number 1 in the constitution that prevents you from doing it...

I think it's brilliant

I think it's a great way to get the federal government out of the state polotocs and allow the people of NC to decide, which I;m sure will be for there to be many religions, or not.. but for the state to protect that, not the federal government.
