Holy crap! That’s all I can say about a bill called the “Constitutional Restoration Act” currently being considered by the US Congress.
The opening paragraph from the znet.org article below says it all: “Tired of waiting for the Second Coming to enforce Christ’s rule on Earth? Fortunately, so is your Congress and they know how to “bring it on.”"
Basically this law would create an “exception” that courts cannot rule on anything that in any way interferes with the laws of their god. Oh, and also “acknowledgement of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, or government.”
Ok, it doesn’t happen to just be extremely hypocritical that the US speaks (and acts) against other governments based on religion, and is trying to make itself one now. Governments based on religion are a bad thing. People know this, the government has acted on this basis in the past, etc.
The difference is that the new biggest lobby group in the country (Christian Right) sees a chance to seize permenant control over the country. People should be VERY mad about this. Why have we not heard it? Think about it – this bill essentially creates their god as the supreme source of power in the US. Except for one thing: none of these politician jokers actually talk to god, so it’s installing them as the supreme source of power in the country.
People need to wake up before this goes through or else they’re going to wake up in a much different country. Every person in the country will have to memorize the bible to make sure they’re not breaking “the law.”
