Merry Christmas signs stripped down, replaced with Happy Holidays. Age old traditions ended, like prayer at the inaguration. All because of a seperation of Church and State that doesn't even exist.
You may claim it's in the US Constitution; but go ahead, show it to me. Do you mean this?
Article [I.] (See Note 13)
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Note 13: Only the 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th articles of amendment had numbers assigned to them at the time of ratification.*
That doesn't involve a judge having the ten commandments in his court does it? Maybe you mean this:
"I contemplate with solemn 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 and State."- Thomas Jefferson**
No, that can't be it, he's referring to that same amendment, which I've already shown has no seperation of Church and State. I can't imagine the State thinking the Church a threat to it, merely it being a threat to the Church. Who knows maybe they figured that someone might pray and collapse their building. No, that would be the power of prayer affecting the governments descisions which clearly violates the seperation of Church and State...
I'm stuck. Could it be someone decided everything in the government goes both ways, for equality's sake! Yes, that has to be it. Well I'd better charge Congress with tax evasion. What! Things in the government don't go both ways?
It is clear all support for the existance of a seperation between Church and State is false, therefore the bible can be in the courts, the ten commandments in the White House. Most of all the president can tell his country "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night."
