U.S. - More government officials across the country are calling for common-sense religion control.
The officials insist they don't want to ban religion entirely -- they just want some basic, common-sense laws to regulate it. From background checks to licensing requirements and forced church closures, state officials everywhere are leading the charge to implement much-needed regulations on the practice of religion.
"It's past time that we begin implementing basic, common-sense laws against potentially problematic religions," said Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear. "Nobody's coming for your religion -- we just want some safe and sane restrictions on it."
"If we save even one life, it's worth it."
Measures proposed by many state legislatures and governors include the following:
- Background checks on purchases of holy books
- Age restrictions before religious teaching can be given
- Limit to number of theology books one can own
- Pastoral licensing
- Bans on high-capacity church buildings
- Stringent restrictions on concealed Bible carry
- A 10-day waiting period after you click on a sermon on YouTube
