Texas Legislator Against Theocracy

 Posted on January 25, 2011 in Uncategorized

Mimicking proposed legislation in several other states, Rep. Leo Berman (R-Tyler) suggested a constitutional amendment prohibiting Texas courts from enforcing, considering or applying religious or cultural law.

As a bulwark against Christian fundamentalist theocracy (which is, let's face it, the only kind of theocracy we could possibly slip into), it's a good start. It'll also keep those pesky Ten Commandments out of the courtroom. But, Rep. Berman, are you sure you cleared this with David Barton first?
