In January, Simon Brown, writing for Church and State magazine, outlined the six biggest threats that religion-before-state legislators will present this year. I think it’s time to take a look at how these are shaping up at the brink of the second quarter of the year; what’s been tried and what’s to come and then debate and discuss...

I don't think we should be required to worship anything. I also think that the Constitution, fine a document as it is, also needs to be considered with a critical mind, remembering that the world had changed a great deal in the 250 or so years since it was drawn up.
I think one thing definitely needs to stand, though, and that is maintaining (or re-creating) a separation between church and state. It is a dangerous thing to add elements of superstition to documents that are meant to offer protection of rights to all citizens.
I won't go into specifics with each category, but in general, they are all wrong. All are violations of the Constitution. None are necessary for the education of our children or the betterment of our nation.

School Vouchers- Defunding public schools to fund vouchers for religious based school institutions is WRONG and Dishonest
Creationism in Science Class- It's not science it does not belong in science class and it sets up students for failure
Etc etc etc. Let's just say religion has NO business being incorporated in Public school in any ways shape or form and we need to emphasize the importance of separation of church and state.

I think anti shariah laws are ridicules. These laws are unnecessary. State and federal laws supersede any other laws people make. That's already the law. I live near the largest Islamic population in the United States, and its not an issue here. Shariah law wont hold up as a defense in court, if they brake federal or state laws. If people want to follow additional laws on their own thats up to them. We don't need another law.

The point is they are an issue beside people keep writing them even though they are unconstitutional
The point is I was giving my opinion on the proposed laws that were mentioned. Just like the other people posted after me. Why split hairs with me?
