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?

We're going to need a bigger bracket.

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