The concept of ‘separation of church and state’ as we hear it today is a fallacy. The founders created our constitution and wrote the FIRST amendment first, because it was important to them. They broke free of Britain because they wanted to exercise their religion the way they wanted, not the king’s idea of religion. The idea of ‘separation’ was to keep the government out of our churches, not our religion out of government.
Now we have insidiously regressed to the level of government doing things that were not even conceivable within the United States just a few years ago. As an example, read the following article and watch the video (brief) to see how crazy things have gotten.
And of all places, this is in TEXAS!!! But let me point out, if they defeat Texas, they win the country — we ARE the anchor for conservative thinking today.
