Some Want NC to Be Able to Make Laws About Religion
The North Carolina House's top leader is blocking legislation that declares the state can make its own laws about religion, and the federal government and courts can't block them. A spokesman for Speaker Thom Tillis said Thursday the resolution filed this week by two Rowan County members won't be heard by the chamber. That confirms comments made Wednesday by one of Tillis' lieutenants - rules chairman Rep. Tim Moore - about its fate. One of the resolution's sponsors said it was only intended to allow Rowan County officials to open their meetings with prayer, not to establish a state religion. The American Civil Liberties Union sued Rowan's board of commissioners last month, accusing the panel of violating the First Amendment by routinely praying to Jesus Christ to start its meetings.
