Welcome to Gilead, Part 2: The Reconstructioning

Good fucking God. This is the language of a bill that has been introduced to the House:

Constitution Restoration Act of 2005 - Amends the Federal judicial code to prohibit the U.S. Supreme Court and the Federal district courts from exercising jurisdiction over any matter in which relief is sought against an entity of Federal, State, or local government or an officer or agent of such government concerning that entity's, officer's, or agent's acknowledgment of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, or government.

There, right there, is a bill saying that everyone must recognize that government comes from God. Not the people, not the Founding Fathers, but God. Because atheists don't matter.

And what, pray tell, happens if one goes against the bill?

Provides that any Supreme Court justice or Federal court judge who exceeds the jurisdictional limitations of this Act shall be deemed to have committed an offense for which the justice or judge may be removed, and to have violated the standard of good behavior required of Article III judges by the Constitution.

In other words, if you recognize that, hey, maybe a book that decries, at certain points, lobsters, long hair, and polyblends, isn't a good source of determining law, then you're out on your ass.

There's probably very little chance this bill is going to pass. But the fact that these men have the fucking nerve to even suggest turing the US into a theocracy is frustrating. And the scariest part is, why does no one care?
