Separation of Church and State? You Commies!
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay believes there is no constitutional guaranty of separation of church and state. Like many illiterates he believes that when the constitution says:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..." it means that they can make no law respecting an establishment of "a" religion - meaning a specific religion. People like Tom have been trying to get access to the constitution so they can pencil that "a" in but as of this writing they have not been successful.
Something I find more shocking that the fact that the House Majority leader can not read is the fact that he can not even understand the need for such a separation. What kind of a moron (out side of a few of the more nut bucket-like churches that handle snakes and sleep with their cousins) still thinks that God would be caught dead using the state as an instrument? If God can not get off his ass to pester the non-religious people of earth himself, what makes him think that he wants bureaucrats to do it for him? Where in the Bible does it say:
"Low, I wish you to use every tool of government to instill respect in me, so that every mouth that might criticize me might be silenced and have eternal life. Annoy the unbelievers ceaselessly and put praise to me on you coins. Tell the children to swear loyalty to the nation through me so that unbelievers shall be pissed off. Yea that doth amuse me greatly. Tell the unbelievers that they are not citizens of your nation so that I should not be disturbed by their doubtings."
Maybe after DeLay learns to read he can look that passage up for me.
Jebus freaks can at least take comfort in the fact that it only seems to apply to congress so states can become full fledged theocracies if they want. I am not a constitutional lawyer though so you might want to check that out before you start beating you kids and keeping concubines.
