Missouri Resolves to Destroy Religious Freedom

Missouri House Concurrent Resolution 13: Resolves that voluntary prayer in public schools, religious displays on public property, and the recognition of a Christian God are not a coalition of church and state.

Recently South Dakota banned all abortions except those that would kill a woman carrying a child to term. If she would be merely maimed or crippled for life, the abortion is still illegal. The religious right is placing its considerable pile of chips on the new Supreme Court. They assume Justice Roberts, Scalia and Alito especially will uphold this vicious and cruel law.

HCR 13 isn’t a bill that can be enacted into law. It is merely a resolution. Cynical politicians often make political hay by sponsoring loony resolutions. They are just so much hot air.

I believe it is only a matter of time before some legislative body will test the waters with a unilateral repeal of the 1st Amendment. Let the ACLU sue. The Religious Right thinks they have a stacked court that will lie down and roll over for them whenever they decide to bark a command.

Clearly they are correct in the case of Scalia. It is mostly his rhetoric that they parrot. Uncle Thomas will do whatever Scalia tells him. Roberts and Alito yet remain a mystery. Do they have any honor? Do they love freedom? Do they have any respect for the rights of all Americans? We shall see.
