I just love when liberal attempt to re-write the constitution.  The First Amendment truly does not say anything about the separation of church and state.  Most liberals attempt to say a religious person should not be elected because of this supposed separation of church and state.  I’m going to give you a free history lesson on that part of the first amendment.  apparently, most liberals don’t get it.  To truly understand the religion part of the first amendment, you have to look at what was going on in that particular point in time.  Then it will make more since than anything anybody else ever said about it.

In the pre-revolutionary war period, religious figures were part of the government and used their positions to abuse citizens and prisoners.  Women were often sentenced to work as prostitutes for the Catholic Bishop and if they refused, they were tossed into boiling water/oil or where tortured until they were killed.  Men were imprisoned and tortured/killed in prison.  Our founding fathers wanted to prevent such things from happening to us. 

Here’s the First Amendment as written:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

This basically means that our government will not establish  a nation-wide religion as part of the government.  They realized the danger this would have on our nation and our religious freedom.  Notice the words seperation of church and state do not appear in the first amendment.  Coons was wrong when he said it was written into the constitution.  Of course don’t expect anyone on the left to acknowledge that because they had too much fun talking about how stupid she was all the while the only person that looked like an idiot was Coons.  The words truly aren’t in the first amendment although the supreme court interprets it as the seperation of church and state.  That was not what coons said, he said the words “seperation of church and state were written into the constitution.
