Would Sharia Law be OK?
North Carolina Has Some Ideas About the Constitution and Jesus
From the piece:
The argument the legislators are making goes like this. The Constitution is the law of the land, Bill of Rights included. However, allowing federal courts to determine what's constitutional is not something explicitly articulated in the document. And since the Tenth Amendment says that anything not delegated to the federal government by the Constitution becomes the province of the states, that means North Carolina can determine for itself what is and isn't unconstitutional. And if it wants to decide that it's officially a Muslim or Jainist or whatever state, it is welcome to do so, because it doesn't think that's unconstitutional. Quod erat demonstratum.
