Michele Presnell, N.C. Lawmaker, Opposes Islamic Prayer

More bad publicity for the State of North Carolina…

This is from one the latest batch of GOP idiots elected to the State Legislature last election- when the Democrats stayed home….

Elections have consequences and that one had big ones- it handed the State Legislature to the GOP along with the power to gerrymander the districts to make it safe for people like this to keep their seats…

But this woman is just beyond stupid…

But if you click the link and look at her picture….

From TalkingPointsMemo.com:

A Republican legislator in North Carolina told a constituent that she has misgivings with an Islamic prayer being conducted before a legislative meeting because she doesn’t “condone terrorism,” the Raleigh News & Observer reported Wednesday.

In an email exchange obtained by the News & Observer, state Rep. Michele Presnell (R) was responding to a constituent who asked her if she is comfortable with a prayer to Allah taking place before the meeting.

“No, I do not condone terrorism,” Presnell responded to the constituent.

Presnell did not immediately respond to TPM’s request for comment.

The constituent was taking Presnell to task over an ACLU lawsuit against a North Carolina county over Christian prayers being conducted before commissioners meetings there. That lawsuit was the impetus for a bill that would nullify any federal ruling on prayer in the state, on which Presnell is a co-sponsor.
