State religion bill sparks more insanity

Michele Presnell [1]House Speaker Thom Tillis has just got to be thrilled by the lovable lugs in his increasingly crazy caucus.  First, nearly one our of every five House GOP’ers [2]signs on to the now-officially kiboshed bill to reject the First Amendment’s application to North Carolina. 

Now, after Tillis thought he had put the whole matter to rest [3], one of the sponsors of the bill (Rep. Michele Presnell) is at it again — telling a constituent that she would not be comfortable with prayer to Allah before a legislative meeting because “I do not condone terrorism.”

Looks like North Carolina’s ongoing role as the butt of national media and comedy show jokes is likely continue for a while.
