there is no "Separation Clause" in the US Constitution....
when you start with a gross falsehood, your argument is worthless.....
The founders intent is crystal clear on this.

Why is it that you communists hate the Constitution and our founders beliefs so much??

You try to rewrite the intent of our founders and th ewords of th eUS Constitution with stupid opinions. You will fail at this as you fail at all else, Nobraina.

----------

>>>"Separation of church and state" (sometimes "wall of separation between church and state") is a phrase used by Thomas Jefferson and others expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The phrase has since been repeatedly used by the Supreme Court of the United States.
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...." and Article VI specifies that "no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States." The modern concept of a wholly secular government is sometimes credited to the writings of English philosopher John Locke, but the phrase "separation of church and state" in this context is generally traced to a January 1, 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson, addressed to the Danbury Baptist Association in Connecticut, and published in a Massachusetts newspaper.<<<

Separation of Church and State has never been the rule in American History. Private organizations and schools can be religious based.

Democratic Party is a big tent party with both believers and non believes welcome -thus we win elections

Too funny!!
So how's it feel to be the bottom of the economic barrel??
Is Obama responsible for your economic failures for 63 years??
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Wouldn't have any problem buying a house in the sticks where you live. In the big city - like Orlando, the resort capital of the world - the competition is a little tougher. Unlike you and most liberals, we have a budget and plan to stick to it.

But don't tell me. You'd offer more than a house is worth even if you can't afford it just because you're "entitled" to it. Right?

Or do you live in government housing already?

GOPís secret idiot? If George P. Bush is its future, the partyís in trouble
Dubya's nephew is running for office, and is Rand Paul's expert on Hispanic voters. But his luck may be running out
George Prescott Bush, son of Jeb and grandson of George Herbert Walker, is running for Texas land commissioner. Next stop: the White House! As long as he manages to get himself elected land commissioner, that is. It may be tougher than he anticipated, which is to say it may actually require more than simply wanting the job and being named Bush.
Not many Texas voters really understand what the land commissioner does, making it the perfect office for someone with a lot of money and/or name recognition but no prior experience. Unfortunately, it is actually a pretty powerful state office, responsible for millions of acres of land, including mineral rights leasing, making it perhaps not the best office for a political neophyte with no prior government experience.

Hard to believe this one claims to have bought and sold a number of houses.
Either way they are looking to buy without putting at least 20% down as required by her fellow 'conservatives'.

Show us the evidence the White House had of those "spontaneous demonstrations" Obama lied about for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi.
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
From Obama's own mouth:
2004:
"My opponent was born in Kenya."
Obama - "So what? I'm running for Illinois Senator, not the Presidency."
Did Obama lie when he said he was born in Kenya? Or, did Obama lie when he began to claim in 2007 he was born in Hawaii?
already covered...

why do you continue to post proven lies?

Your opinion (or should I refer to it as generalized hatred) of religion is irrational.

My church and its parishioners are not a cult and we preach neither hatred nor divisiveness.

yet the constitution does clearly and irrefutably state that the gov't and religion shall never be one. you may use whichever word you want to describe this separation of the two. but that will not change the fact that there is a constitutionally mandated separation of the two.
