How have we missed this, given the rampant victimization syndrome among the Religious Right forces in Arkansas?
Missouri votes Tuesday on a "Right to Pray" state constitutional amendment. It's certain to pass overwhelmingly. Reports Huffington Post:
Supporters say the so-called "right to pray" ballot measure — known as Amendment 2 — better defines Missourians' First Amendment rights and will help to protect the state's Christians, about 80 percent of the population, who they say are under siege in the public square.
Opponents, meanwhile, say that the religious protections Amendment 2 would offer are already guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution, and that it will open the door to all manner of unintended and costly consequences including endless taxpayer-funded lawsuits.
State Rep. Chris Kelly, a Democrat who opposed the original legislation, called Amendment 2 "a jobs bill for lawyers."
Same thing in Arkansas, right? The non-believers have the Baptists on the run, from Eudora to Gravette. Right?
SPEAKING OF MISSOURI: Shadowy outside groups have spent an estimated $15 million — so far — to unseat U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill. It could be a template for future elections in the Citizens United world. It seems likely, for example, that stealth money will be deployed in unprecedented sums in Arkansas state legislative races this year.
