No Sex at Church, Please. It's Against the Law!

I was skimming through some Facebook posts when something caught my attention. It was an article entitled "11 Bizarre Church Laws That Could Send You To Jail." Needless to say, I had to check it out.

The article claims that these eleven laws are apparently still on the books in various US states. What I found most amusing was the fact that they were ever put there in the first place. For example, according to the article, it is illegal to have sex in a churchyard in North Carolina. The fact that the law exists, would seem to suggest that sex in churchyards was a problem in that state, for why else create the law in the first place?

In my way of thinking, laws are only created to deal with problems in society. If nobody was ever guilty of driving too fast, there would never be laws to say that you can't speed. In the same way, there would be no laws making it illegal to steal if there were no thieves. Laws against having sex on church property? Hmm.

Anyways, enough of my rambling; here's some weird church laws to make your day. Enjoy.
