Religious Freedom

Well, after adjourning last night at about 11:15 p.m. we took up the floor debate this morning with HJR19 http://www.house.mo.gov/bills071/bills/hjr19.htm

If passed by both chambers it will go to a vote of the people. Once again, a resolution that is completely unnecessary but will do a heck of a good job drawing certain voters out to the polls at the November 2008 election.

The two major points of the resolution are to guarantee and reaffirm "a citizen's right to pray or to express his or her religious beliefs" and "the right to free exercise of religious expression". I'm pretty sure these two issues are already guaranteed by the courts and I've never seen a constitutional amendment used to "emphasize" or reaffirm anything.
