6 Biggest Religious Right Threats to America
http://www.alternet.org/belief/6-biggest...ts-america

From the article:
Quote:Multiple courts have said “no” to states that want public schools to teach “intelligent design” creationism in science classes, but that doesn’t faze Montana State Rep. Clayton Fiscus (R-Billings).

Fiscus, a Tea Party favorite whose professional background is in real estate, asked the legislative services staff of the Montana House of Representatives in November to come up with a bill for the 2013 legislative session that would “require public schools to teach intelligent design along with evolution.”

Lawmakers like Fiscus often push their agenda in defiance of established constitutional law, and sometimes hope they can create a case to convince the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn previous decisions that contradict their personal beliefs. Americans Uni­ted combated a wide array of state-level leg­islative schemes in 2012 that sought to tear down the critical safeguards that keep church and state separate.

...

The 6 items are: Religious School Voucher Subsidies, Creationism In Science Classes, Prayer And Proselytizing In Public Schools, ‘Conscience’ Exemptions, State ‘Prayer’ Caucuses, and Anti-Shariah Laws. The last one irks me more because they are freaking out over religious laws and are singling out one group for more scrutiny than anyone else. Religious laws are not enforceable IAW the US Constitution and ONLY apply to those of said religion. (BTW, Muslims are about 2% of the total US population, but for the anti-Sharia mob, that's a majority. Facepalm ) If anything the religious RW-nuts want THEIR religion to become part of secular law and enforced on everyone. Nono

Our enemies from the rabid racist religious RW are not taking a break. As usual, what they don't like about the Constitution, they just ignore. Rolleyes
