Your Government at Work

Via Ezra:

With little public attention or even notice, the House of Representatives has passed a bill that undermines enforcement of the First Amendment's separation of church and state. The Public Expression of Religion Act - H.R. 2679 - provides that attorneys who successfully challenge government actions as violating the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment shall not be entitled to recover attorneys fees. The bill has only one purpose: to prevent suits challenging unconstitutional government actions advancing religion.

I hadn't heard about this. I wish I could say I was surprised, but I'm not. Sometimes I think I have lost the capacity to be surprised by these people.
