AZ State Senator: Making Church Attendance Mandatory Would Stop ‘Moral Erosion’

An Arizona state senator said during a recent debate on gun legislation that America is facing “moral erosion” and the only thing that could really fix it is if church attendance was made mandatory.

Sylvia Allen was talking about a bill to allow people with concealed carry permits to bring their weapons into public places where such weapons would otherwise be banned (i.e. schools). She used the opportunity to go off on how “we are slowly eroding religion at every opportunity that we have.”

“Probably we should be debating a bill,” Allen continued, “requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth.”

Allen did note that she doesn’t actually think that would be able to pass; she also didn’t specify whether she really meant every American or just Christian Americans.

In the past, Allen has talked of the earth being only 6000 years old and a conspiracy by the U.N. to topple the Constitution and implement some kind of communist takeover of America.
