Says 'wall of separation' is apocryphal



On the evening of June 17 I was watching the early 5 p.m. news on WRDW-Channel 10. Once again, they used one of those "buzz-terms" that raises my hackles, as it should with every one of us who are patriotic, Bible-believing Americans. That was the generously over-used and completely untrue falsehood about "the wall of separation between church and state." Media gurus and the totally ignorant of the media love to bring it up whenever there is any question concerning public schools (or public anything) and biblical Christianity.

Having gone through the trouble of actually reading through the U.S. Constitution including the Bill of Rrights, much to my surprise there was not one thing alluding to the "wall of separation between church and state" to be found there. Read it for yourself!

History does tell us that back in the 1940s the American Civil Liberties Union argued a case before the U.S. Supreme Court. As part of their arguments they quoted from the Constitution about the "wall of separation between church and state." Just one thing, though, to keep in mind. ... the Constitution used as their source material was not from our beloved Constitution but from the constitution of the Soviet Union. In keeping true to their founding fathers, these litigators showed their true allegiances, and it ain't to the U.S.

We need to pray for the ACLU and the Supreme Court justices.
