A couple of weeks ago I told you about the inherent differences between the Carolinas by looking at their respective license plates. I may have spoke (or blogged) to soon. Our southern neighbors legislative wishes have been challenged by the usual atheist and non-christian litigants, who have found a sympathetic ear with federal judge Cameron Currie.
SC's premier political newspaper, the State, has the details.
Now, let's see. A federal judge has gotten involved so there must be a constitutional question. So, let's pull out our copy of the Constitution and have a look at Amendment number 1:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…(Fortunately for the the plaintiffs, the South Carolina legislature is the initiator here, not Congress.)
Now, I seem to recall a little rowdydow down in South Carolina some years back over the limits of federal power. More to come from the Palmetto State.
