Liberals have run off with this phrase, prostituting it per usual.
The matter is simple. It's this: America does not want a state church. England has a state church the Anglican Church. America does not want one denomination considered The Nation's Church. On the other hand, America has a religious heritage. It's not Muslim. It's not Hindu. It's not Shinto. It's not animism. It's not New Age. It's not Paganism. It's not Voodoo. It's Judeo-Christian. America, while not desiring a state church, does desire religion in life. That includes religious expression in everyday exchange. Because Judeo-Christian is America's heritage, most citizens honor that heritage expressed and honored. Its expression then should not be thwarted. It should not be belittled. It should not be erased in the name of "separation of church and state." Unhampered religious expression is promised in the First Amendment.
Further, America, having a Judeo-Christian heritage and the right to present-tense expression, permits freedom of religious expression to other religions. Therefore, there are those of other religious persuasions who practice without fear their religions in America.
What the liberals want to do is redefine the phrase "separation of church and state" to exclude Judeo-Christian religious expression in America. They want not only "separation of church and state" defined on their terms but the exclusion of the Judeo-Christian religion and anything coming close to that particular religious expressionperiod. Liberals believe that if they continue harping on the "separation of church and state" phrase, brainwashing the public with their prostituted definition, especially indoctrinating the next generation with their prostituted definition, then they will have won secularism for America's future.
They, in other words, want not only separation but exclusion of religion completely so. Note however that the chief religion they want excluded is Judeo-Christian.
They will even tolerate other religions, as they are presently doing with the Muslim infiltration, but it is Judeo-Christian that they want cleansed from America. In other words, it's a religious cleansing they desire for this nation the extinguishing specifically of the Judeo-Christian faith.
Therefore, if tolerating another religion such as Islam helps wipe out Judeo-Christianity, then so be it. Islam is far better a tolerance than the American heritage of Judeo-Christian. Therefore, there are school districts hiring Muslims to speak to teachers on how to give Muslim students honor and space. No such invitation, of course, has been extended to Judeo-Christian specialists speaking to public school educators on how to give Judeo-Christian adherents honor and space.
In a nearby high school, a prayer room was set aside for Muslim students. No such prayer room or any other respect has been presented those of the Judeo-Christian heritage.
Liberals, in other words, will do whatever it takes to obliterate America of its rightful Judeo-Christian heritage. This is accented every year particularly during the Christmas season. Any other so-called "religious expression" can come to the fore but the Christian particulars must be silenced at all costs. So we hear throughout the Christmas season, not Christian hymn carols, but "separation of church and state."
Once again, liberals have taken language to serve their own twisted purposes. They took "gay" and made it "homosexual." They took "pro-choice" and made it "protecting females." They take "separation of church and state" and make it "wiping out America's Judeo-Christian heritage."
What those of the Judeo-Christian heritage must do and far more concertedly than they have ever done in the past is to make clear to the public what "separation of church and state" really means. This must be put in print in magazines and journals. It must be preached from pulpits. It must be taught in religion classes. It must be spelled out in letters to the editor.
Unfortunately, this simply has not been done. The church in particular has permitted the liberals to carry on with their prostitution of the phrase. I have been appalled over the years to note that the church specifically has not risen to expose the liberals' misuse of that phrase. Therefore, the young have taken quickly to the liberals' definition while the church has sat, in the main, silent, allowing the enemy to win out.

Let me know if you would like to join my ACLU ping list
I would have put it
They take "wiping out America's Judeo-Christian heritage" and make it "separation of church and state."
Great post, otherwise!
They were not given these rights by government. They were not given them by some covenant. They were not given them by other people. These rights did not come through evolution from lower life forms.
They came from the Creator of human beings.
The acknowledgement of the Creator is the foundation of American law.
The American people need to keep this in their awareness, and anyone who seeks to expunge the recognition of God from American law should be stopped.
The only problem with this article is that the author takes the phrase "separation of church and state" and treats it as though it is in the Constitution or something. It's like arguing about how much a unicorn weighs. There are no unicorns so why bother?
A nice point is that the prohibition against favoring one church or another is about this or that organization and not at all about religion. Thus, there is no First Amendment requirement to separate religion from state so long as the state's recognition of religion does not rise to the level of 'establishing' a particular church.
JAY THANK YOU FOR THIS MOST VALUABLE INFO
Heard par tof a bit on the 700 Club today about how the
ACLU has won a case in Tx. to have an old Bible displayed by a private group on the sidewalk in front of a Courthouse ordered removed as unconstitutional. Any posts on that yet? I weary of the freaks and Zekes thinking they can establish that failed Soviet Communist system here
