They'd make keeping kosher a crime too, except that they like their bagels too much

I wonder what other religions' practices they're going to make a crime in Tennessee:
A proposed Tennessee law would make following the Islamic code known as Shariah law a felony, punishable by 15 years in jail.

State Sen. Bill Ketron, R-Murfreesboro, and state Rep. Judd Matheny, R-Tullahoma, introduced the same bill in the Senate and House last week. It calls Shariah law a danger to homeland security and gives the attorney general authority to investigate complaints and decide who's practicing it.

It exempts peaceful practice of Islam but labels any adherence to Shariah law — which includes religious practices such as feet washing and prayers — as treasonous. It claims Shariah adherents want to replace the Constitution with their religious law.

A dozen other states are considering anti-Shariah bills, and there's a federal lawsuit in Oklahoma over one.

But, but...feet washing and prayers are Christian things, too! (Someone should tell those guys that. And then put up the blast shield.)

This has turned into a country being led by minions of Forest Gumps. At least intellectually. Even Forest had compassion.
