The North Carolina General Assembly is a simple place, as expressed by House Bill 494:
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....
[T]he Constitution of the United States of America does not prohibit states or their subsidiaries from making laws respecting an establishment of religion....
The North Carolina General Assembly does not recognize federal court rulings which prohibit and otherwise regulate the State of North Carolina, its public schools or any political subdivisions of the State from making laws respecting an establishment of religion.
But why stop with a state establishment of religion? Why not explicitly nullify the income tax and shoot for the restoration of slavery? Such lunacy, after all, is the simple, antebellum, and for that matter Articles of Confederation world that NC's Republican legislators "propose."
Morons. Utter morons, elected wholesale by idiots. Most legislation of the imbecile sort usually elicits forceful counterarguments by informed civic minds. But the mounds of crap spewing from Republican state legislatures these days are merely offensive jokes meant to be nugatorily offensive--since that is what amuses the idiots. No counterarguments are necessary or even advised. It's that dumb, all of it.
North Carolina (and North Dakota, and Texas, and ...) government is merely a demagogue's plaything, just a stage for buffoonery. And it's precisely what the Founders anticipated from a profoundly ignorant electorate.
