Imagine there's a heaven; it's easy if you try

Arizona state Senator Sylvia Allen, a Republican from Snowflake, made a keen observation during a debate on carrying concealed weapons into government-owned buildings. She said the real reason people no longer feel safe is the country has divorced itself from God:
“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 [but] that would never be allowed.”
Well, why not? If you can force people to buy health care insurance regardless if they want to, you can force them to attend church. Prayer after all helps heal, which would reduce health expenses, right?
Sylvia Allen is taking self-righteous crap from atheists who mock religion and patriotism.

But she did not push a law. She merely said we should be debating a cause of violence. And she told a newspaper afterward: “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.”

How odd that the media consider her viewpoint odd.

She is not foisting herself on others. She is merely stating the obvious about societal change. Only in repressive regimes are there subjects you cannot discuss.

Cue John Lennon.
Imagine there's a heaven
It's easy if you try
With hell below us
Above us more than sky
Imagine all the people
Praying each Sunday...
Or Saturday.
