Title: Arizona state senator wants mandatory church attendance

PHOENIX, March 28 (UPI) -- Arizona state Sen. Sylvia Allen said she is unapologetic after suggesting the state require Sunday church attendance to precipitate a "moral rebirth."

During a committee debate on allowing concealed guns in public buildings, the Republican senator said mandatory church attendance would stem a moral crisis she says is eroding the "soul of America."

"I believe what's happening to our country is that there's a moral erosion of the soul of America," she said. "It's the soul that is corrupt. How we get back to a moral rebirth I don't know. Since we are slowly eroding religion at every opportunity that we have. 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."

Democratic Sen. Steve Farley, who was at the meeting, posted her comments on Twitter. He said the comments go against the United States Constitution.

"Even if you believe that would stem the moral decay, I think the Constitution makes it very clear that our country is founded on the pillar of separation of church and state," he said.

Allen later called her comments "flippant," but would not apologize. She said the 1950s were a more peaceful time for the country.

"People prayed, people went to church," she told the Arizona Capitol Times. "I remember on Sundays the stores were closed. The biggest thing is religion was kicked out of our public places, out of our schools."

I doubt that anyone examines this meaningful and truthful statement by state Sen. Sylvia Allen.

Keep in mind this is the same state that keeps electing John McLunatic.

That's one step beneath a requirement to watch old Howdy Doody re-runs.

Fallible and Uninspired church-lady having bad hair/whig day assumes dominion over the faith of others?

"I believe what's happening to our country is that there's a moral erosion of the soul of America," she said

Maybe that's because so many American's abdicated responsibility for their own spirituality and settled instead for an Appokeelyptic religious side show?

Nope. But that is about all the systems Americans know I imagine - not a politically bright people.

Hopefully she knows there are some Christians who observe the 7th day of the week as their day of worship and rest. Some smaller groups won't even use the Roman pagan day names of the week.

So she stepped off wrong there.

The US was founded by Christians who looked to the morals of the Bible as a compass. However it is clear they did not want a theocracy. Nor a compulsion for church attendance.

What is interesting is even though our Federal government is prohibited by the 1st Amendment to establish a religion, the states are free to do so. It was not until 1833 that all states disestablished its state religions. The last state was MA in the same year.

The 1950s gave birth to the 1960s.
