Legislative Buffoonery

This excerpt from a Time article about proposed legislation re: church and state:

The North Carolina bill—which appears to be dead for now—was one of two big church-state blow-ups last week. In Tennessee, legislators withdrew a school voucher bill that would have allowed parents to direct taxpayer money to private schools, including Christian academies. The reason they balked: it suddenly occurred to them that the bill would also allow parents to direct tax dollars to Islamic schools.

    The funny thing is there is no way an Islamic school could be more corrupting and indoctrinating than a leftist public school.

    I just find it hilarious that they apparently didn’t care about offending the sensibilities of non Christians when they were drawing up the legislation but then suddenly when the shoe was on the other foot they suddenly realized how it would feel to be on the other side. Integrity is holding position because it is true, not changing your position depending on whether the circumstances happen to favor you at the moment.
