State religion in North Carolina? Guess which political party thought that was a good idea.

The GOP in North Carolina has put forth a measure that would allow for the establishment of a state religion.  Their reasoning is as follows:

“The Constitution of the United States does not grant the federal government and does not grant the federal courts the power to determine what is or is not constitutional; therefore, by virtue of the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, the power to determine constitutionality and the proper interpretation and proper application of the Constitution is reserved to the states and to the people,” the resolution states.

Yeah, let’s see how that works out if it goes up the chain to a federal court.

Oh, and the Constitution does, actually, grant the federal government those powers.  Not only that, but the state Constitution of North Carolina does likewise.

Article 1, Section 5 of the North Carolina Constitution requires the state to observe federal law: “Every citizen of this State owes paramount allegiance to the Constitution and government of the United States, and no law or ordinance of the State in contravention or subversion thereof can have any binding force.”

But if most Christians can’t be bothered to read the bible, why would they need to read the documents they were sworn on the bible to uphold?
