I wouldn’t have declared a travel ban on Mississippi just because of their recent legislation barring any law barring limitations on the size of sugary drinks. I think I read recently that Mississippi is the fattest state in the nation and, hey, they want to be fat, I don’t care.
But today my friend Jerry Coyne—a vigilant separation-of-church-and-state watcher, especially any attempt to co-mingle religion with science—posted this on his Why Evolution Is True web-zine, warning about how Mississippi, not content with being fat, has now legislated a sneaky, unconstitutional way of getting prayer into public schools.
Why do I sense that the ACLU will be bringing a lawsuit?
Mississippi, the Fat Kids in Prayer State.
