Even if the fine line between Church and State is thinner than a runway model, the line between church and hate is getting bigger by the second. Logic and understanding of the Constitution by Teapublicans is sort of non-existent, but in Arizona it might as well be a pink unicorn.
Enter Republican State senator Sylvia Allen.
Sen. Allen can best be described as crazy cat lady meets crazy church lady, so naturally the type of legislation she introduces is part Christian Taliban and part dementia. Apparently the Arizona State senate was discussing one of those psychotic ammosexuals bills about bringing guns into every conceivable place and Allen brought up religion. Allen said:
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,” adding “that would never be allowed.” “I believe what’s happening to our country is that there’s a moral erosion of the soul of America,” she said.

An erosion of the soul might have more to do with sociopathic Republicans in Congress preventing any meaningful action on climate change or assistance to those in need. So the only people who should be forced to attend church are members of Congress. Both use a collection plate as a slush fund, but the Congressional one is much bigger.
And much like every totally deluded and miserably uninformed Republican lawmaker, yearning for a time that never actually existed and was pretty crappy for a vast array of people, Allen then called on life to be more like the 1950s.
Woo-hoo! Civil rights problems, women’s rights problems, voting rights problems, and segregated schools!! Call Don Draper and pop the champagne! Then again, Republicans are doing whatever they can to make sure that voting problems exists for minorities again. But perhaps she’s reading from one of those Texas history textbooks as she wouldn’t be an elected representative if times were still like the 1950s. I’ve heard of a dry heat in Arizona, but is there also a hate heat?
