Judge Manning in the earthly court the U.S. District Court incorrectly interpreted the Constitution. The First Amendment does not call for separation of church and state; it says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."
This is clear, all the cases about monuments, The Ten Commandments, crosses on memorials, crosses on city seals, menorahs and nativity scenes on public squares are all examples of how far this mis-interpretation has driven our public life. It is high time to stand up and tell people that the constitution carrys no right to "Not Be Offended" and this is what the interpretations of the establishment clause have boiled down to. If I can see this, judges (who are far smarter then me) can see this too. Look for some incidious agenda on the part of the democrats behind these affairs, and vote them out.

They (judges, ACLU, et al) conveniently use Jefferson's letter to the ministers as the basis for the "seperation" argument.
Jefferson wrote the Religious Freedom Act for the Virginia Constitution, which is the basis for the First Admendment religious clause.
They ignore the written law, and base their philosophy on some obscure private communication.
I've had it right up to here with every stinking one of them. My last nerve is frayed and bare and THEY are ON IT.
