...No, not these folks:



...Or these:

Instead the good ol' folk in Alabama are wondering if they should let the church have their own police force:

Quote
An Alabama megachurch is seeking to establish its own police department — and a bill that would green light the force is already moving through the state senate.

The 4,100-member strong Briarwood Presbyterian Church, located in suburban Birmingham, contends it needs its own police force to counter any potential threats because it is also home to a K-12 school and a theological seminary with 2,000 students and teachers.

Failing that there is another law that they are trying to pass that would allow churches give armed churchgoers legal protection if they shoot people...

Because it's been a while that Alabama was a disgrace to the USA.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Well, right now there's King Donald Joffrey Trump, so...
Quote from: William Lyon Mackenzie King
There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Which is a problem. If you are powerless.

Something something Jaehaerys the Conciliator

Jaehaerys I was the king who outlawed the Faith Militant in the first place, before Cersei overturned his laws

To use another reference, if they put a Malcador the Sigilite type in charge the irony would become delicious.

They expect arrests for being gay and other social deviances.

They get a decent guy who goes after Republicans for corruption and insufficient provision of social safety nets.

Good idea, let's turn the town into Christian Saudi Arabia.
Because Religious law and fundamentalism is great.
