Sunday Funnies

RSR doesn't often post on Sunday, however, when we opened the Metro section of the Kansas City Star and read the lead article on the social agenda proposed by Missouri conservatives -- which included the sub-head, "It's time to get back to basics," we put the paper down and walked over to the computer. Here are the first few paragraphs:

A year after Republicans took control of state government, conservative lawmakers are promoting a wide range of social legislation designed to rein in sex and unshackle the Bible.

From new limits on sex education classes to penalties for living in sin, the proposed laws would remake Missouri’s public life in myriad ways. They would sanction prayer in public schools, subsidize religious schools and allow the Bible to be taught in school.

One bill purports to help women make “the transition from work to home.” Another wants the legislature to recognize “a Christian God” as the deity for most Missourians.

Rep. Cynthia Davis, an O’Fallon Republican and sponsor of several bills, said conservatives are tired of an overly permissive society in which high school students are taught how to use condoms.

“It’s time to get back to the basics,” Davis said.

Take a good look. That's the theocratic future. If we let it happen.
