Separate The Democrats From The Government

"Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibit the free exercise thereof" ~ The Constitution of the United States

Joe Biden, campaigning in Nevada for Harry Reid, referenced the Republican candidate for Congress, Christine O'Donnel's recent question "Where in the Constitution is separation of Church and State?"

Then, pretending he didn't know to what O'Donnel was referring, he used that question to mock both O'Donnell and Nevada Senate Candidate Sharron Angle.

Biden is wrong. So is Chris (The bearded Marxist) Coons. The phrase "Separation of Church and State" is not found in the Constitution. Both Biden and Coons, as well as millions of other Liberals and atheists(but I repeat myself), intentionally misinterpret and twist the words of the first amendment to advance their Godless, Liberal, bastardization of the Constitution.

Here is what the establishment clause of the 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States actually says:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

Would someone please explain to me how Liberals can get "Religion shall not be practiced in the United States unless the Government says it can" out of that?

The intention was to keep the Government from establishing a national religion like that of the Church of England, which was the official Government church in England at the time the Constitution was written. Part of the reason the founders declared independence from England was the refusal of the King of England to allow them to worship in the church of their choice.

These Godless, atheistic, Liberals conveniently focus on the first part of the establishment clause and forget the second part.

Congress is prohibited from creating some national official church. True. But they creators of the Constitution also expressly forbade Congress to prohibit the free exercise of religion.

We need to vote every one of these misinterpreters of the first amendment out of office in November.

In my opinion, " establishment..." is different from the often misquoted, "...the establishment..."

One is a noun, the other a verb...and it makes all the difference in the world.

Not only did the framers wish to prevent the government from creating a state religion, they intended to protect religions from the incroachment of the government.

"...No law..." is pretty clear.

Sadly, the vast majority of Americans actually believe that the First Amendment contains the words "separation of church and state."

I do wish that O'Donnell had given a clear explanation of her intent.
