The Evangelical Underground has a nice short post on separation of church and state called Shall Make No LAW. Nice reminder of the obtuseness of our current anti-religious fervor.
The government can make no LAW establishing a religion. Which is why in 1782, while our founding fathers were still alive and kicking, Congress authorized and financed the printing and distribution of the Aitkens Bible for use in schools and soldiers at war.
If the liberal reasoning about the founding father’s intent is to be believed, we should have documented protests about this landmark action, shouldn’t we?
Of course we don’t because while the seperation of church and state was a real thing, it was still approached with a certain amount of rationale and saneness.
