The Left Wants the State to be God


One of the “5 Right-Wing Lunacies This Week: O'Reilly Goes Way Off the Deep End” (an article by Janet Allon on AlterNet.com) was Senator Rick Santorum’s contention that the concept of “Separation of Church and State is a Communist Idea.”

4. Rick Santorum: Separation of Church and State is a Communist Idea.
Sure hope Rick Santorum runs for president again. This theocracy booster told listeners that the words separation of church and state do not appear anywhere in the U.S. Constitution. You know where they appear?  “It was in the constitution of the former Soviet Union,” Santorum said in a conference call with members of right-wing pastor E.W. Jackson’s STAND America.
Whoa!
Someone needs to do some time-traveling quick to inform Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and other Founding Fathers that the amendment they drafted into the Constitution is a commie plot to separate us from Jesus!


Here is my comments in response to the above:

"The words separation of church and state do not appear anywhere in the U.S. Constitution" So, where in the U. S. Constitution do these words appear, Janet? Senator Santorum is correct, they do not appear in OUR Constitution.

It was the SCOTUS that perverted and misinterpreted the original intent of the Founders. It was never the intent of the Founders to separate God from the State, but only to insure that no specific Christian demonization be made the official state church, like was the situation in England.

Roe v. Wade is another perverted, misinterpreted decision. There the Supreme Court invented a right ("a woman's reproductive right" which is the right to kill a woman's unborn baby, a developing human being ) that was never intended either.

The biggest lesson that should be learned is that SCOTUS is not supreme and they are extremely fallible as are all human beings and institutions.
