Help Me Howard: 666 Plot [Lawyer: "...Constitution... says, church and state must be separate...]
WSVN ^ | 9/25/12

Three numbers 666 many people believe its the sign of the devil. So how would you feel burying a loved one in a plot numbered 666....

"The courts recognize religions and religious holidays, but they don't recognize religious beliefs. That sound contradictory but it comes from the U.S Constitution's First Amendment that says, church and state must be separate. If it sounds confusing its because it is."

Funny, I've read the Constitution several times and never before have I found that phrase. In the video, this quote occurs at about 3:00 into the report.

A friend told me about this “anti-Christ graveyard” story...so I watched it. Was really more struck by the lawyer’s statement than the lady’s superstition.

Of course, the lawyer has the loophole that when the state becomes god, redistributing and rescrambling the money inputs into arbitrary outputs of chaotic nature, separation of church and state becomes a moot point.

Socialism makes the state god. So, this is where all this oxymoron starts.

The Founders were clear in their view of what constituted separation of church and state indeed. But these lawyers have their heads up their arses, making up rules and interpretation at their corrupt convenience, not out of some “ideology”.

Makes me laugh at the stupidity.

It is no exaggeration to say that on Sundays in Washington during the administrations of Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809) and of James Madison (1809-1817) the state became the church. Within a year of his inauguration, Jefferson began attending church services in the House of Representatives. Madison followed Jefferson's example, although unlike Jefferson, who rode on horseback to church in the Capitol, Madison came in a coach and four. Worship services in the House--a practice that continued until after the Civil War--were acceptable to Jefferson because they were nondiscriminatory and voluntary. Preachers of every Protestant denomination appeared. (Catholic priests began officiating in 1826.) As early as January 1806 a female evangelist, Dorothy Ripley, delivered a camp meeting-style exhortation in the House to Jefferson, Vice President Aaron Burr, and a "crowded audience." Throughout his administration Jefferson permitted church services in executive branch buildings. The Gospel was also preached in the Supreme Court chambers.
