North Carolina Threatens Separation of Church and State

"Imagine driving from Northern Virginia to the Outer Banks in North Carolina, and as you hit the state line, you see a large highway sign that reads: 'Welcome To North Carolina: A Christian State,' complete with an iconic image of Jesus on a cross,"  writes Rev. Barry Lynn  in the On Faith section of the Washington Post.   Rev. Lynn is executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State in Washington, D.C.

Rev. Lynn asks us to imagine this situation because two North Carolina representatives just introduced a resolution to declare Christianity the official state religion. Does it violate the First Amendment guarantee that government cannot prefer one religion over the other?  Here's another article from CNN.
