❝ The Alabama Senate has passed legislation allowing a church to form its own police force.
With a decision that is unprecedented in the United States, legislators voted for the bill 24-4 — clearing the way for Briarwood Presbyterian Church to establish an independently run law enforcement department.
Because what could possibly go wrong when a religious organization is put in charge of trained and armed officials?
❝ Church representatives say they need the force to keep their 4,000-person congregation safe – blah, blah, blah…
❝ Critics feared the department could be used to cover up crimes on church property or at the church’s high school, like an incident with drugs that took place on campus in 2015.
The author of the bill is the same cretin who passed Alabama’s anti-Sharia law [Amendment One] forbidding consideration of “foreign laws” – something which never happened in the history of Alabama. Though there is no shortage of idjits who think the United States is alien territory and want another shot at the Confederacy.
❝ Like the church police legislation, Amendment One passed with flying colors. 72% of Alabama voters supported it.
Republicans know they can count on the idjit vote.
