I guess I'll take this study and the one that says its totally harmless, and wad them both into a ball, and throw them into the trash. These studies - whatever their result- will always say exactly what those funding them asked them to say.
nothing to see here- move along.

yes he intended to get the state out of the church, not the church out of the state.

Not actually said by Jefferson, but in line with his writings is the saying by Thoreau which says "that government governs best which governs least". I think Jefferson would have agreed.

Yes, many miss the fact that Jefferson's implications in his famous letter were to separate state from church, not church from state. In other words, the state should have NO power in regulating or overseeing the affairs of the church. Yet, they do that very much today. And they have banned the opposite.
My wife is handicapped. Every time we go to the store, we find more people parked in the spots. Some of them get those disabled stickers because of what is now termed "non-visible disabilities". And they all look at using those parking spots as a privilege they have gained. I just want a spot to park a van that has a lift that comes out the side. We wish they'd put the spots in the middle of the parking lot so that they wouldn't be such an attraction, After all, we just need the space, not BETTER access.
At least they'll be able to compete with the rich elite who like to fund their own campaigns. Those guys seemed to be able to contribute to their own campaigns endlessly. For example: McCain, Bloomberg, Romney, Perot, etc. This might even the tables a little bit.
Now that is transparency. You can look right at it, and it has no substance on which to make an argument.
You cannot "unring" the bell so to speak. Unfortunately, this movie has been made, and obviously has done a poor rendition of what is presented to us in the Bible. It's a shame that the wonderful story was not presented by a better director, and with a story line that more closely followed the story. But as others have pointed out, I guess that's the freedom of artistic expression. I'd have really liked to see a good story of Noah done with todays modern CG effects, and giving us a believable rendition. As it stands, I guess many like me will simply vote with our non-attendance. Too bad, because I like the actors.
DWS needs attention. You can always tell when she's off her meds.
