Arizona Lawmaker Wants To Make Church Attendance Mandatory

What on earth is it with Arizona and Indiana this week? Is someone giving out new toaster ovens to the state that can prove they are worse than Florida in the shortest amount of time? I am really starting to wonder here.

Anyway, State Senator Sylvia Allen (R-Snowflake…For Real, Not A Joke) brought up a real snazzy idea this Tuesday at a committee meeting during a debate on concealed carry permits–making church attendance mandatory for every American!

Now, you may be wondering what on earth either of those things have to do with eachother. Well, Sen. Allen believes that until this country has a “moral rebirth,” people are going to want to carry guns around with them all the time. How to make that “moral rebirth” happen? Make everyone go to church!


“I believe what’s happening to our country is that there’s a moral erosion of the soul of America,” she said.

“It’s the soul that is corrupt. How we get back to a moral rebirth I don’t know. Since we are slowly eroding religion at every opportunity that we have. Probably we should be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth,” she told the committee.

“But since that would not be allowed and we would not even be debating that, I’m going to vote yes that people who are responsible who have a CCW permit don’t have to worry about their guns as they’re out and about and doing business in whatever building they’re in except ones that where they aren’t allowed,” she said.

OK, no offense lady, but atheists only make up about 0.07% of the prison population. I’m not really sure we’re the ones you have to worry about.

Naturally, Allen considers herself a great defender of the constitution, for whatever that is worth to you.
