Again, it seems to be an easy answer as to why atheists fight against religion. When you're talking freedom, it's a fight worth waging.

North Carolina state Rep. Carl Ford backs a religion bill that would allow the state to declare an official state faith.
The bill, filed Monday by two GOP lawmakers from Rowan County and backed by nine other Republicans, says each state "is sovereign" and courts cannot block a state "from making laws respecting an establishment of religion." The legislation was filed in response to a lawsuit to stop county commissioners in Rowan County from opening meetings with a Christian prayer, wral.com reported.
The religion bill comes as some Republican-led states seek to separate themselves from the federal government, primarily on the issues of guns and Obamacare. This includes a proposal in Mississippi to establish a state board with the power to nullify federal laws.
The North Carolina bill's main sponsors, state Reps. Carl Ford (R-China Grove) and Harry Warren (R-Salisbury), could not be reached for comment on Tuesday, The Salisbury Post reported. Co-sponsors include House Majority Leader Edgar Starnes (R-Hickory). Another is state Rep. Larry Pittman (R-Concord), who in February introduced a state constitutional amendment that would allow for carrying concealed weapons to fight federal "tyranny."
I wonder what form of Christianity will be the "official" state religion. I suggest that the religion be called SAS or Silly Ass Society.
Haha, I guess that should combine all of them?
So much for signing the constitution that governs how the people and all level of governments are suppose to act and is the cornerstone to the uniting of the individual states as one country not individual countries!
I'm sure the south would love to secede. Theocracy for all.
