The Latest Ignorance Based Assault on Christine O'Donnell

Disclaimer -- I am a lifelong agnostic who believes in the THEORY of evolution. Unlike Chris Coons, I am NOT a totalitarian Marxist who would dictate which theories may and may not be taught (or even discussed) in government run schools.

In her latest debate, Christine O’Donnell had the temerity to ask her Marxist opponent:
Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?
On queue, the breathtakingly ignorant and fully indoctrinated audience laughed at what they clearly regarded as the latest gotcha moment reaffirming the utterly dishonest media created meme of just how ignorant this Tea Party rube is. The media, of course, are piling on in support of their own utterly dishonest meme.

What was missing -- both at the debate and in the media propaganda -- was ANY legitimate answer to her very legitimate question. Why? Because there is no legitimate answer to her question. Religion is mentioned once and ONLY once in the entire Constitution -- in the First Amendment. But, the First Amendment provides ONLY for freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof
If anybody was demonstrated to be ignorant of the Constitution, it was Coons. Not only does he fail to understand the extremely clear and extremely limited meaning of the First Amendment, he even misquoted the amendment -- substituting the word “government” for the word “Congress”.

Now, click here to start this clip at the beginning and listen to Christine’s defense of intellectual freedom where the question of the origin of life is concerned.

As for the various constitutional amendments Christine was asked to comment on…
First, did you notice the so-called “moderator” gave Coons the advantage of requiring Christine to recall off the top of her head what each of these three amendments provided for? Second, click here for some insight into what is arguably the most destructive of all Constitutional amendments perpetrated by so-called “Progressives” (back when they actually bothered to pay any attention at all to the supreme law of the land).

Did I mention that -- for very good reason -- I really despise almost all so-called “journalists”?

Spirit vs. Letter.

"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof', thus building a wall of separation between Church & State"

-Thomas Jefferson, 1802

No, that term isn't in the Constitution. But Mr. "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants" is expressing, clearly, the intent.

You so-called "Progressives" see what you want to see and -- time after time -- showing utter disrespect for the supreme law of the land, invent Constitutional principles which simply do not exist.

The only thing Jefferson was saying (in that informal, non-binding letter) was that the First Amendment was the one and only brick required in that wall.

Again, the only restriction which the First Amendment places upon the "free exercise" of religion is that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof".

PERIOD! End of story! Except, of course, in the fantasies of so-called “Progressives”.
