"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCIZE THEREOF; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press...." (1st Amendment to the Constitution- part of the Bill of Rights). The First Amendment was written and ratified by men who ALSO approved the hiring of a Christian Chaplain for the U.S.Senate, so that legislative meetings might be opened in prayer, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Time to put your 'thinking cap' on, boys and girls.... Were these men SCHIZOPHRENIC, by hiring a Christian chaplain to open legislative proceedings at the U.S.Congress, OR, did they have SOMETHING ELSE in mind when they wrote the words, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion"?

No sooner had I expressed my differences with the president’s announcement supporting same-sex “marriage” than a young man named Collin posted on my Facebook page, “You have to leave your stupid religious dogma behind when talking about state and national issues. You are basing your objection to homosexual marriage on the Bible which would be violating the American principle of separation of church and state.”

Not only is this the opposite of what our Founding Fathers intended, but it is also completely hypocritical, since Collin voiced no objection to the president pointing to his religious beliefs in support of same-sex “marriage.”
