Half-Hearted Theocracy

Apparently, a handful of minor Republican politicians in North Carolina think theocracy is good idea and a few Major figures within the party agree, sort of. It looks like these religious right nut-jobs started an attempt to allow North Carolina to declare Christianity that state's official religion. It doesn't look like they are going to see it through. That's great. However, it is not because they have come to their senses or acknowledged that it is unconstitutional. It looks like they have backed off in part because the bill is so unlikely to even make it out of committee. I have a feeling it also has to do with Carl Ford, one of the co-sponsors, developing cold feet for a variety of practical and political reasons, none of which include integrity or decency.

In any case, the fact that these assholes were even considering it is very disturbing.
