Has anyone heard of this initiative?

" From KMOV.com ( Channel 4 news ST Louis Missouri)"


"State bill proposes Christianity be Missouri's official religion

12:28 AM CST on Friday, March 3, 2006

By John Mills, News 4

Missouri legislators in Jefferson City considered a bill that would name Christianity the state's official "majority" religion.

House Concurrent Resolution 13 has is pending in the state legislature.

Many Missouri residents had not heard about the bill until Thursday.

Karen Aroesty of the Anti-defamation league, along with other watch-groups, began a letter writing and email campaign to stop the resolution.

The resolution would recognize "a Christian god," and it would not
protect minority religions, but "protect the majority's right to express their religious beliefs.

The resolution also recognizes that, "a greater power exists," and
only Christianity receives what the resolution calls, "justified
recognition."

State representative David Sater of Cassville in southwestern
Missouri, sponsored the resolution, but he has refused to talk about it on camera or over the phone.

KMOV also contacted Gov. Matt Blunt's office to see where he stands on the resolution, but he has yet to respond."

Well that's the first I've heard of the officiation of the initiative, but I swear I've seen this coming for a long time now. Sad, yet frighteningly true.
Soon America will be re-named "jesusland" and our constitution will be a book of their bi(b)le.

This works for the fundamentalists out there. You see, for them, its a all-win situation. If it passes, they win. If it doesn't, they win because they can claim everyone is persecuting them again. Doesn't surprise me that some spinless politician decided to use this to further his own power.

I hope that is not true that is ridculous. Relgion ruins life for a lot of people, it starts wars, causes people to act crazy! The more the government endorses a man made religous system; the more people will be lead astray. Whatever happened to seperation of church and state?

Nov23, 2009 Willard would like to know what were the results of the attempt to pass this bill to make Christianity recognized as the official religion in Missouri? I would not expect it to get very far.
