Please read the inserted document. This bill is totally unconstitutional as it violates the first amendment of the US Constitution and the 36th of the Maryland State constitution.

I believe it can be shown the the whole American Medical System can be proven to be a religion. That means this bill is introducing the State’s religion! Even if a judge disagrees with my interpretation of current case law which will establish this as the State’s religion, the curriculum is such that it parallels topics of most religions. I present these 2 arguments with case law in the document below which I will be submitting as my testimony in opposition of this bill.

Remember that “strongly held beliefs” is all that it takes now to define a religion. And if the committee doesn’t withdraw this bill, they are in fact showing how strongly they believe in the “system” they are promoting and therefore strengthen my allegation that it IS in FACT A RELIGION!

Please read!
