Eye On Olympia

Good God…

For a day that began with the House of Representatives members trying hard to put a Muslim-slighting incident behind them, Friday was a day chock-full of God in the statehouse.
Debating a controversial bill to require members of the clergy to report child abuse, members of the House quoted the Apostle Paul, created a hypothetical scenario which had a Muslim witnessing child abuse by a rabbi, touted their preacher-kid backgrounds, and mentioned Mormons, Episcopalians, Evangelical Lutherans, Methodists and nearly half a dozen other denominations.
The bill, HB 1054 (To read a summary, click here) finally passed, 62 to 35.
