I'm getting a little tired of this crap...
A group of New York City atheists is demanding that the city remove a street sign honoring seven firefighters killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks because they say the sign violates the separation of church and state.
“And it’s a totally religious statement. It’s a question of separation of church and state.” He was nonplussed over how his opposition to the street sign might be perceived – especially since the sign is honoring fallen heroes. “It’s irrelevant who it’s for,” Bronstein said. “We think this is a very bad thing,”
“The patriotic and right thing to do is to obey our own law and to realize that we are a diverse nation, a melting pot full of different views,” Silverman added. The local and national atheist organizations said they’ve offered alternative names that would still honor the firefighters, but without any religious affiliation
But the city has no intention of removing the sign. If that’s the case, Bronstein said he may consider a lawsuit.
Read the whole thing. I'm not even going to get into how SICK and TIRED I am of this country bowing down to anyone who gets their nose out of joint when it comes to Christianity. What I DO want to provide is a little history lesson...not the garbage they are now teaching in academia, but REAL American History.

Nowhere in the Constitution does the phrase "Separation of Church and State" appear!

The Constitution CLEARLY states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;...
Seems to me that these litigious groups suing left and right over Christianity are inhibiting MY free exercise of religion. But I digress.

The "separation of church and state" phrase was penned by Thomas Jefferson in 1802 in a letter to the Danbury Baptists. In it he writes:
Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.
So to all those idiots out there who THINK they are pointing to the Constitution when referring to "separation of church and state"...why don't you actually READ the document to which you refer?? Sheesh!


  1. Too many people coming into this country that don't respect this country for what it is.. a FREE NATION...

    ...who then become attempted leaders and shred all they can of the constitution of the United States... which is what makes America beautiful... or it did...

    When a high school student makes news winning a fight against a ...C'mon.. A "Moment of Silence" in her school... ( which was MY..and yours too Chris.. School).. What?
    .. Taking God out of school wasn't enough.. taking entire FREEDOM from us ... AND THEMSELVES... ?? even QUIETLY.. is PISSING me OFF. (deep breath)... Good night.. and God Bless America, the Troops... and

  2. Chris, you don't really expect these morons to "do their homework", do you? They'll grab onto a phrase that suits their purpose and hang on like a dog with a bone. Reality is not high on their list of priorities. :/

  3. Sigh - I know. Guess I just heard that particular phrase one too many times. The rant was there - had to get it out. ;)

  4. Need a "LIKE" option for posts and comments.
