Civics class

David Sater
Anyone who passes a 4th grade civics class know that this is unconstitutional:
Missouri legislators in Jefferson City considered a bill that would name Christianity the state's official "majority" religion.

The resolution would recognize "a Christian god," and it would not protect minority religions, but "protect the majority's right to express their religious beliefs.

The resolution also recognizes that, "a greater power exists," and only Christianity receives what the resolution calls, "justified recognition."
That pretty much sounds like a law concerning the establishment of religion. We aren't even a complex multi-pronged Lemon testy thing. It's a violation of the plain text of the Constitution.

The bill originated in the twisted mind of Cassville, MO's David Sater. Missouri readers should mock him mercilessly. And maybe get ahold of his elementary school grades, just to make sure he actually did graduate from 4th grade.
