Missouri has officially crossed into religious psycho-land...

I know I'm a Wisconsinite, but Missouri has officially crossed into psycho-land...

SECOND REGULAR SESSION
House Concurrent Resolution No. 13
93RD GENERAL ASSEMBLY
4572L.02I
Whereas,
our forefathers of this great nation of the United States recognized a Christian God and used the principles afforded to us by Him as the founding principles of our nation; and
Whereas,
as citizens of this great nation, we the majority also wish to exercise our constitutional right to acknowledge our Creator and give thanks for the many gifts provided by Him; and
Whereas,
as elected officials we should protect the majority's right to express their religious beliefs while showing respect for those who object; and
Whereas,
we wish to continue the wisdom imparted in the Constitution of the United States
of America by the founding fathers; and
Whereas,
we as elected officials recognize that a Greater Power exists above and beyond the institutions of mankind:

Now,
therefore, be it resolved by the members of the House of Representatives of the Ninety-third General Assembly, Second Regular Session, the Senate concurring therein, that we stand with the majority of our constituents and exercise the common sense that voluntary prayer in public schools and religious displays on
public property are not a coalition of church and state, but rather the justified recognition of the positive role that Christianity has played in this great nation of ours, the United States of America.


To hell with the First and the Fourth Amendments to the Constitution. We are on a fast track to a U.S. Theocracy. I thought at first that it was just crazy talk on local Fox 6 news tonight, but alas, I found the actual resolution.

I'm actually at a loss for words, so I guess I'll just let this nonsense speak for itself....

I'll be even more frightened if it was a unanimous vote.
