State religion bill sparks more insanity

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 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 , 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.
John Frank has the story here .
