Apparently State Senator Bill Ketron and State Representative Judd Matheny of Tennessee want to demonstrate just how badly American schools teach the U.S. Constitution. Both of these men have introduced identical bills into the Tennessee Senate and House of Representatives which, if passed, would outlaw the practice of Shariah law in the state of Tennessee and gives the State Attorney General the ability to investigate citizens who might be practising Shariah law.
Really quick, lets review what the Constitution has to say about religious freedom.
Amendment 1 – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Am I the only one who sees an issue here ? I understand that conservatives don’t really like the idea of multiculturalism. I understand that Christians as a rule tend to disdain other religions. I also understand this is a bill being introduced into a state legislature and not a federal level bill. But really, I mean seriously REALLY ? The good thing here is this bill will probably not pass, the sad thing is they are actually debating it instead of laughing these two idiots out of office.
