So, basically the plan is to take advantage of the fact that barring Scalia's early heart attack, absolutely nothing of genuine concern to the conservative morality wars will squeak through the Supreme Court. Until then, they can pretty much do anything they like on the state level and know it won't get struck down.
Dear Jesus: we promise you a mass conversion if you kill Antonin Scalia within the next year before the Lame Duck final two years starts.

"...I mean it does mean freedom from Islam and all those wacky religions, but it doesn't mean freedom from Christianity!
...I mean it does mean freedom from all those socialist hippie open-border peace loving versions of Christianity, but it doesn't mean freedom from MY version of Christianity!"

Is this a dupe?

Cooch, bet they spell it couch though.
Also: Matthew 6:5,6
5, And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Truly I say to you, They have their reward. 6, But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father which sees in secret shall reward you openly.

Liar... immediately afte picking his son up from school, instead of going to work on crafting legislation, he went to chik-fil-a.
Stars for naming the boy after the worst President ever.

I hate this guy and his state legislators with a passion. Why the FUCK don't these idiots know that once the door is open again between religion and politics, its only a matter of time before their precious freedom of religion is taken away. People will vote along with their churches and democracy will be over. These people are doing such evil, thinking that somehow this will strengthen faith.
I come from a pretty religious family, and yet they are all reasonable, faithful people. They don't push it on anyone and are tolerant and loving. The last thing people like my family want is to have their church and faith sullied by government and politics.
On a last note, I find it ironic that these same people that want NO BIG GOVERNMENT and FREEDOM and all that jazz are the same ones that want to eliminate the borders between church and that same government.

also, major props for the "Texas is the reason" tag.
I don't think you understand: That's their wet dream. They WANT a theocracy that will punish those they disagree with and put to death their opponents.
They all assume it's going to be THEIR religious sect that's going to take over, even though Christianity is about as fractured as a broken window. The irony of decrying Sharia Law taking over in America is completely lost on them.

What I love about these types of laws is that the states that think they need them are the states that are in no danger of losing any sort of Christianity in the public square.
Take my main job, working in a public school in Kansas. Every Christmas it's the same thing, teachers losing their minds about not being able to have "Christmas Parties" or sing songs that mention Jesus or whatever. Yet, every fucking year we have Christmas parties and every year we sing songs like Joy to the World.
One time on Veteran's Day, a fellow para-educator gave a speech (because he's a veteran) to inspire the kids and he just used his time to tell them to trust in Jesus. Again, this is on Veteran's Day.
In fact, the only holiday that parents have a real cock-block about is Halloween. I've never gone through a year without some different kid not being able to sing Halloween songs or wear a costume or participate in a Halloween party because their parents' stupid superstitions.
Serious question: what Halloween songs are there other than Monster Mash?
A variation of "The Bear Hunt" was played everyday leading up to Halloween: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZpf0SIO-sY
"This is Halloween" from a Nightmare Before Christmas.
This piano song was used a lot because our time learning to play songs on a synthesizer was right before Halloween: http://youtu.be/CYKYp6FpkJ0
And no shit, pretty much any song in D Minor.
