ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - I often wonder why Christian Conservatives are so eerily paranoid about their beliefs. To hear them tell it, We live in Saudi Arabia With Christians persecuted at every turn. Maybe it's the whole not believing in evolution thing. They figure any minute someone will accuse them of having descended from a lemur And they get jittery and paranoid.

Anyway, These leading minds of the 14th century are at it again in missouri. This time, they've put an amendment to the Missouri constitution on the ballot on August 7th. It guarantees the right of any student to engage in voluntary prayer in school. It allows any student to opt out of any class that violates their religious beliefs.

The Missouri constitution already guarantees freedom of religion. So why all this fuss? Because so many of their kids were calling out the name of the lord in the middle of biology class? No, its because in their paranoid fantasies, Christian beliefs are under attack. These are the same people, by the way, who bought into that whole phony war on Christmas. Remember that?

So here's what I hope happens. I hope this nonsense passes and becomes part of the state constitution. Since Missouri's already the nation's meth capitol being a laughing stock about something else probably won't matter too much. Then I hope the law of unintended consequences takes over.

I want little Muslim kids to bring their prayer rugs to school, face Mecca and pray four or five times a day. I hope kids who're devotees of Santaria bring animals to class so they can sacrifice them. I hope kids start skipping English classes and then tell their teachers it's because their religion requires them to be anti-semantic.

I'm Charles Jaco and that's Jacology.
