Christine O’Donnell, First Amendment, Separation of Church and State, Delaware Election, Delaware Politics, Politics, Election 2010, Delaware Senate Race, Obama News
In a debate at Widener University, with a leftist crowd of uneducated college students (who seem to believe the 1st amendment actually contains the phrase “separation of church and state”) Christine O’Donnell stood up to the leftist belief that religion has no place in the public square, that only secular godlessness reigns supreme in the public square. As a result, the leftist blogosphere is atwitter, literally, accusing Christine O’Donnell of not knowing what the 1st amendment means. Oops!
It turns out she does, and they don’t. The 1st amendment in no way shape or form articulates this mythological ‘separation of church and state’ that has been used by secular, godless, leftists to chase any religious value systems out of the public square in favor of so-callled value-neutral secular judgements. As the Freedomist has covered for some time now, there is no such thing as a value-neutral law. Your laws will be based on some value system, in this case, the value system is godlessness, is ANTI-Christian. The Federal government has decided to create a church, the church of atheism. Christine O’Donnell represents a substantial portion of Americans who are fed up with having atheism forced down our throats, with haivng God chased out of the public square in favor of Atheist, State control laws and out-of-control Supreme Courts that can barely protect our right to bear arms (5-4 vote, remember that?)…
Here is a snippet from an excellent article defending the Christine O’Donnell stance on the 1st amendment:
In a debate at the Widener University Law School, Ms. O’Donnell interrupted her Democratic opponent, Chris Coons, as he argued that the Constitution does not allow public schools to teach religious doctrine.
“Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?” Ms. O’Donnell asked him, according to audio posted on the Web site of WDEL 1150 AM radio, which co-sponsored the debate.
The audience at the law school can be heard breaking out in laughter. But Ms. O’Donnell refuses to be dissuaded and pushes forward.
“Let me just clarify,” she says. “You are telling me that the separation of church and state is in the First Amendment?”
When Mr. Coons offers a shorthand of the relevant section, saying, “government shall make no establishment of religion,” Ms. O’Donnell replies, “That’s in the First Amendment?”
Matt Moran, Ms. O’Donnell’s campaign manager, wrote in a statement after the debate that “Christine O’Donnell was not questioning the concept of separation of church and state as subsequently established by the courts.”
“She simply made the point that the phrase appears nowhere in the Constitution,” Mr. Moran said
Read our editorial on Separation of Church and State and the great divide in America that O’Donnelll exposed:
Rush Limbaugh articulates a fundamental defense of O’Donnell that follows along the path we are making in this excerpt from his radio show 10/19/20:
In short, if you want to follow the MSM logic, the logic of the left, you will discover a world where only atheists and secularists can make decisions that govern the majority of Americans who still hold to and follow Christian value systems. This is a world controlled by a godless minority, and we shall not let that continue.
