Reader, can the government really tell people how to practice their religion? Is this blatant overreach and violation of religious freedom and the first amendment? This country was founded on religious freedom and the freedom of speech and expression, it doesn't matter your faith; this is an attack against all of us who agree and abide by the constitution. I don't get how anyone thought that this was a good idea. I'm glad the loud online noise was loud enough to shut this down.
Last week Georgia State Representative Jason Spencer tried to pass a bill that piggybacked off of a 1951 law that effectively prevented the KKK from running around with hoods on, doing the horrible things that the KKK did, back then. He wanted to amend this unmasking law and have it apply to women of the Muslim faith.
