Having slept on this issues, and read through the text and looked at the articles the following can be stated:
If it passes, there will be a lawsuit that goes through the courts up to the Supreme Court of the USA, and ultimately at every step, it will be shot
down. It is a lose/lose situation for all those involved, from the every day people all of the way up to those in the halls of power.
The text of the law seeks to protect the religious freedoms of their citizens, and that is a noble cause, however, in doing so, they are setting up
for cases of discrimination, where they are going to lose. The argument that they are stating that they want to create and establish a state
Consider this, if they set the state religion as being say baptist, that means they then could legally discriminate against those who are Judaic, or
even Catholic, all cause it did not meet the states view of what is and is not acceptable as a religion. And it would get worse, it then opens up for
employers to use that as grounds to terminate or get rid of employeess that they may not like, all on the grounds of this law.
There is another problem and that is the ACLU, in their zeal, they tend to fail to take into account that just maybe, it is a bad idea to persue a law
suit, all cause someone does something, like pray before the opening of a meeting. Too many of those quaint old customs and traditions are being lost
all cause one or 2 people convienced the lawyers that they were hurt by said actions.
