I am going to have to call a hyperbole foul on this one. According to the article the legislature has done no such thing. The Senate bill has been passed by the Judiciary Committe, on a 5 to 2 vote. The similar House bill was scheduled for a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee. I gather, from the article, that neither bill has been debated, much less passed, by either chamber. That is a far cry from your claim that the legisture has "declared that church and state are not separate".
