Lawmaker Suggests 'Moral Rebirth' Through Mandatory Church Attendance

Arizona state Sen. Sylvia Allen (R) recently stated that she would like to make church attendance mandatory in the U.S.

Allen shared her views during a hearing on a bill that would allow people to carry concealed guns into public buildings. She said the real reason some lawmakers opposed the idea was because of "the soul."

Allen also said, “Probably, we should be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth. I believe what's happening to our country is that there's a moral erosion of the soul of America."

Allen also reminisced of her childhood days in the 1950s saying, "People prayed, people went to church. I remember on Sundays the stores were closed. The biggest thing is religion was kicked out of our public places, out of our schools.” Except for the fact that religion has not been kicked out of schools. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the early 1960s that the state could not dictate religion in schools.
