in public places in Missouri. We should also put on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to criticize politicians who pander to religious paranoids. Oh wait. That’s already a right.

My point exactly.

Democrats in the lege pointed out that the right to privately pray is already guaranteed in both the U.S. and Missouri constitutions. They didn’t bother opposing this silliness, apparently believing that there’s nothing to be gained from rattling the chains of folk who would be better served if they noticed how Corpublicans are picking their pockets.

How many times do we need to enshrine this already firmly planted idea? Apparently as often as Republicans deem it useful to get their patsies to the polls.

Hands in prayer
