“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The First Amendment to the Constitution, the one the NC GOP likes least.
Well, thank God. The North Carolina House of Representatives took a stand and protected us from Sharia Law.
You remember that bill to make Sharia the law of the land? Yeah, me neither. But you know what I do remember? A bill to allow North Carolina to enact a state religion.
And you know who is so scared of Sharia Law? Larry Pitman, the same guy who is so gung-ho to make Christianity the state religion.
You know what else we learned today? John Blust is an idiot. Okay, so maybe we didn’t just learn that today but we were reminded of it.
According to WRAL, “Blust said the goal of proponents of Sharia law is to infiltrate other cultures.” That seems to me to be same goal as Larry Pittman.
You know what I really want? A law that protects me against people like John Blust and Larry Pittman.
That’s okay, though. I still believe in the Constitution.
