Missouri will, on August 2, vote on a proposed Constitutional Amendment to their state constitution. The stated purpose of the amendment is protect the "right to pray". Seems redundant given the First Amendment to the US Constitution, but there are other issues with this bit of silliness. Near the end of the text, we find this bit: " ...that students may express their beliefs about religion in written and oral assignments free from discrimination based on the religious content of their work; that no student shall be compelled to perform or participate in academic assignments or educational presentations that violate his or her religious beliefs" Anyone care to lay a wager on how long after enactment the first student will sue because they're asked to do a biology assignment? Perhaps we'll get lucky and the first suit will be over a classroom model of the solar system with the Sun at the middle, if only for the sake of variety. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
