North Carolina House Speaker Kills Bill To Create State Religion
Aww, it's too bad. The courts would have had a field day with this one.
"[House Speaker Thom] Tillis' decision followed several days of national media attention on the bill, which also said that the state government did not have to listen to federal court rulings and was exempt from the requirements of the First Amendment."
Umm... ever hear of the Supremacy Clause? Federal powers and laws trump State powers and laws.
"An explanation on why Tillis decided to kill the measure was not posted and a Tillis spokesman was not immediately available for comment."
Probably because he knew every judge between Raleigh and D.C. would have laughed him and his lawyers out of the courtroom while their gavel was striking down a dismissal of the case.
