save our kids!!
In view of the widely reported and persistent incidences of child molestation and abuse by Catholic priests, Baptist ministers, and other fundamentalist Christian functionaries, the Constitution of the State of Oregon will be and is hereby amended to provide for the safety of our children, by instituting a mandatory certification process to determine custody rights for Catholic, Baptist, and other fundamentalist parents. No Catholic, Baptist, or fundamentalist Christian parent shall retain custody of his/her/their children unless and until cleared of possible tendencies of immorality by a law enforcement records check and certification of morality by a State-certified social worker. Violation of this provision will result in a fine of no more than ten thousand dollars, removal of children by the State, or imprisonment not to exceed one year, or all three.
