A part of me is thinking, just drop it. Don’t cover this stuff. There are only TWO representatives lobbying for Christianity as the state religion in North Carolina. Two wackos. That’s it.
[Actually, that’s not too shabby considering the region. Hey, I’m from NC. I can make these kind of comments. Love ya’, mom.]
It’s not that I don’t think many North Carolinians would not love to have their own particular version of Christianity mandated by the state, it’s that most of them will never even know about it unless we make it another ‘war’ of culture.
Which, of course, leads to the question as to why I’m mentioning it.
I mention it to say, ‘Stop mentioning it.’ Unless, of course, the number of legislators grows from, hmm . . . let’s say from two to . . . oh, I don’t know . . . three. Yeah, three. If that happens, time to start engaging in some Twisted Sister action, baby!
Which, of course, I just discovered, will not be necessary.
[Oh well. Might as well kill some time with the extended version, I guess.]
