State religion for North Carolina?

A joint resolution filed in the N.C. General Assembly declares that the Legislature “does not recognize federal court rulings” prohibiting or regulating the establishment of religion by the state, its political subdivisions, and its public schools. The resolution, HB 494, was filed yesterday and quickly began to hit such national news outlets as The Atlantic, which pronounced today: “You can safely file this under Not Gonna Happen.”

    I hope all the Democrats learned a valuable lesson during the last election; GET OUT AND VOTE! In the past year, we have gone from being the most enlightened of the Southern states to being right there with the likes of Mississippi and Alabama.

    Resolution HB494 isn’t going anywhere. House Speaker Tillis said he won’t allow it to come to a VOTE. One of the sponsors of this bill has already apologized for proposing it in the first place.
