In North Carolina, two state legislators have filed a bill to make it a crime, punishable by up to six months in jail, for women to expose their nipples in public, but their only stated justification for the idea is to put an end to topless rallies in the Smoky Mountain city of Asheville - of which there have been exactly two. http://www.allgov.com/news/unusual-news/the-battle-over-nipple-exposure-in-north-carolina-130217?news=847086 Rayne Brown, a Republican, introduced House Bill 34 to making it a Class H felony to expose "the nipple, or any portion of the areola, of the human female breast." http://now.msn.com/rayne-brown-gop-lawmaker-in-north-carolina-wants-to-make-exposing-a-nipple-a-felony

HB518 makes it a state crime for any N.C. public servant – that includes police and judges – or any agent of the U.S. government “or dealer selling any firearm” in the state to enforce or try to enforce any federal law regarding such firearms and ammunition made in the state and that stays within its borders. To do so would be a Class 1 misdemeanor.

Concerned Women for America of North Carolina, a conservative women's group, will be at the legislative building Wednesday to talk about shielding American courts from Sharia law.
A morning press conference will be followed by a two-hour legislative briefing in the afternoon. Last month, the House passed a bill sponsored by Transylvania Republican Chris Whitmire that prohibits use of Sharia law in state courts.

In total solidarity with the N.C. women, N.C. legislature decided to beat Muslims to it and establish their own Sharia law which they call “Freedom From Federal Organized Oppression Law” or FFFOOL. And true conservative women of the great state of North Carolina fully agree with the following statement:
"Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to respect the other, and because they spend from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient and guard in the husband's absence what Allah orders them to guard." Although the Quran does say this, the superiority of men is interpreted in terms of strength by the context – men maintain women.
This of course is the statement from the Quran but in their blessed ignorance the free FFFOOLs of the N.C. Legislature are very proud of themselves as being on the forefront of all the FFFOOLs in our great country.
