The separation of church and state
According to Liberals The constitution Of The United States contains a “ wall of separation between the church and the state”
“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.”
I keep reading this and can find from this text, No! such separation. Liberals are sticklers for the law when it benefits their argument. The Constitution is a contract between the citizenry and the federal government
So let’s break this down. It says the congress; and it only speaks to the congress; shall make no law establishing a state sponsored religion. and then it says OR, make any law prohibiting the FREE exercise thereof;
It would seem to me that CONGRESS has to stay out of the fray! That leaves only the courts and the executive branch with any say at all. Sense these two branches are not empowered to make law only interpret law and sense no law exist or can exist under our constitution. We then must defer to the tenth amendment
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.’
In other words we the people get to decide whether in our state, we say under god; or have a monument to the Ten Commandments in the public square. If our kids want to carry a bible to school or pray at a football game it is our decision. Un less of Corse we have somehow given up these rights in our respective state constitutions; a matter that we may easily remedy in the voting booth.
Just some food for thought.
