Utah Buttars Backs Baloney Bill

Wacky Utah Congressman D. Chris Buttars is at it again:

He wants a state law to stipulate that individual expressions of religious faith are protected on public property.

This is a short article, but the one-liners are absolutely fabulous:

...Buttars is back again with another legislative solution desperately seeking a problem...

Like last year's creationism bill, Senate Bill 111 was created with no intelligent design.

Forget about dogs that won't hunt. This is a bird that won't fly. It has wings of concrete, an easy mark for any lawyer -- which Buttars isn't.

Buttars might have responded to his constituent that the U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled that students can express themselves as long as they don't disrupt school. But that would have taken away his opportunity for religious posturing.
