Imagine an America where, if you want to be a school official or run for state office, you have to prove that you are a certain kind of Christian. Imagine an America where official meetings begins with prayers that infidels will come to know the Lord.
Eight North Carolina legislators and the House Majority leader put forward a bill that would have made this possible, declaring that the U.S. Constitution’s church-state separation provisions applied only to the federal government and not the states. The bill was withdrawn days later when media coverage noted that their point was the same one that the South Carolinians made before the Civil War with respect to secession. My take here.
