    There is the first amendment, and then there is disturbing the peace.

    What was gained by the reckless and personally destructive behavior as it was demonstrated in Lansing nearly 4 years ago?  Was the proselytizing they exhibited successful in converting the church goers to their way of thinking?

    No.  They were simply thugs who don't much like religious freedom.

    Today's news wire reports the governor has expanded punishment for such disruptions:

    "LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder recently signed legislation to protect Michiganders' religious freedom from outside disruptions.

    House Bill 5560, sponsored by state Rep. Deb Shaughnessy, creates misdemeanor penalties for those who disrupt a worship service. Violators will face up to 93 days' imprisonment, $1,000 in fines and 100 hours of community service. Repeat offenders can face 93 days' imprisonment, $5,000 in fines and 200 hours of community service.

    "Religious liberty is one of the founding principles of this country and government is tasked with defending that right from those who try to disrupt a worship service," Snyder said.

    The bill now is Public Act 202 of 2012."

    Its about time.  

    Break out the sprinkles.
