I wish I were kidding.

In an email exchange obtained by the Raleigh newspaper, Presnell was asked by a constituent if she would support an Islamic prayer being said before a state legislative meeting.

"No, I do not condone terrorism," Presnell responded, according to the report. "We just need to start taking a stand on our religious freedom or it will be whisked away from us."

I think the headline on Fark said it best this morning:

North Carolina: "We must lift the ban on religion in public places"
Constituent: "So then would you support Islamic prayers being said before meetings?"
Legislator: "Of course not, that would be terrorism" 

Freedom of long as it's Christian. 

Side note:  I'm really looking forward to seeing all the different sects of Christianity battle it out for the title of "state religion" in North Carolina.  Do they start with a bracket of 64, or do they just settle things cagematch style?

“My next great decision is just lying in wait.
The action might turn out to be the world's most grievous mistake."

We're going to need a bigger bracket.

That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.
