North Carolina to Establish State Religion?

According to a piece by Laura Leslie at WRAL:

A resolution filed by Republican lawmakers would allow North Carolina to declare an official religion, in violation of the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Bill of Rights, and seeks to nullify any federal ruling against Christian prayer by public bodies statewide.

What’s the state faith going to be though? Zoroastrianism? Scientology?

I’m really looking forward to that debate.
