Separation of Church and State: Misinformation and Hypocrisy

Our Constitution forbids the government to make any law respecting “an” establishment, i.e., a particular, religion. However, it does NOT forbid “the” establishment of religion in general. If the Framers had intended that, they would have used the article, “the”.

learn to READ;
the phrase is "make no establishment of religion". NOT "establishment of A religion". There's a BIG difference in meaning.
"establishment of religion" IS a broad statement.

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.”
