Madness reigneth

The right is as nutty as ever.

1. Republican state legislators in North Carolina have sponsored a bill which would establish a state religion. It's called -- get ready -- the "Defense of Religion Act."

What, you ask, about the Constitution? Well, these North Carolina Republicans have decided that they don't need no stinkin' Constitution:
Warren and Ford’s bill would declare that North Carolina is “sovereign” and any court ruling about religion is nullified by the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution.

“The North Carolina General Assembly asserts that the Constitution of the United States of America does not prohibit states or their subsidiaries from making laws respecting an establishment of religion,” the bill states.

“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.”
2. In Virginia, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli wants to reinstate a law which makes oral or anal sex a crime.

The immediate reason for this course of action is a case involving an adult male who talked a 17 year old girl into giving him a blowjob. Cuccinelli wants this man prosecuted under a "criminal solicitation" statute, which makes it a felony to ask the underaged to participate in a crime.
Be like England. We don't have a problem with older men exploiting seventeen year old girls: it's legal. Sixteen year olds can't drink, vote or get married, but they can have sex as much as they like. Or be like Scotland and let them get married too, if you don't like the idea of pre-marital sex.

We also have an Established religion, and no-one makes a fuss about it. The government appoints bishops, bishops go in the House of Lords, religious types get paid to run schools. I don't see what all the fuss is about.
I have always agreed that other people's fun should be criminalised. Similarly, other people's religions are just superstition unlike my religion which is the one true faith.

And of course, my shit dont stink either. Unlike yours.

Seems I should move south.
