Republicans Want To Make North Carolina The First Declared Christian State In The Nation

In short, Republicans in North Carolina want to use the 10th Amendment to nullify parts of the Constitution they don’t like, and the number one piece they want to kill is the First Amendment and the Establishment Clause that bans government from respecting any law that establishes a state religion. If this bill were to pass, the Republican-controlled government would most definitely declare Christianity that state’s religion, thereby alienating and discriminating against every other religion in North Carolina. Establishing their brand of Christianity would give Republicans the opportunity to force their religious views on every citizen of North Carolina, including anti-abortion views, anti-gay views, and any other views they have. These views could in turn be passed as laws to bring the state in line with the new state religion. So even if you aren’t a Christian, you’ll be forced to live the way Republicans want you to live. Republicans have attempted to use the 10th Amendment a lot in recent months in an effort to nullify federal gun laws, federal health care laws, and just about any other laws they hate or disagree with. This latest abuse of the 10th Amendment would strangle religious freedom in North Carolina so that the GOP could sponsor their twisted views of Christianity, placing it on an unfair pedestal above all other religions. This dangerous effort should make every American wary of Republican governance and should make us all question the virtues of leaving the 10th Amendment in place. Perhaps the time has come to lead an effort to repeal the 10th Amendment before Republicans use it to nullify the federal government, the Constitution, freedom, and America itself.
