Separation of Church and State

Let's get one thing straight, the phrase "Separation of Church and State" is NOT in the First Amendment of the Constitution or anywhere else in the document for that matter. What the First Amendment actually says is "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof:...". That is it and it is pretty clear, both in language and knowing the religious situation that existed in Europe at the time, the founders said nothing about keeping religion out of our Government. Somewhere in the past, Progressive Supreme Court Justices have re-defined our Constitution which is NOT their job...they are just supposed to apply the law in a Constitutional manner.

We should turn the tables on the Atheists and Tea Party detractors by actually applying the real First Amendment Guarantees. Let's consider those attempting to stifle all religion by shooting back that they are infringing on our First Amendment right to "freely exercise our religion". Erecting religious signs and objects is NOT prohibiting Atheists free expression of their religion but denying Christians the right to display our Icons IS denying our right to free expression. As for the Tea Party opposition, just remind those Progressive Zombies, including those in the current administration, that the First amendment states that we have the right to peaceably assemble and to petition the Government "... for a redress of grievances". Oh, and by the way, isn't the US Navy infringing on FOX News' right to free speech and denying the Freedom of the press, both rights defined in the First Amendment? FSN should sue the Navy on these grounds. Isn't Cass Sunstein's call for "infiltrating" demonstrations,both physical and virtual, Unconstitutional and shouldn't he lose his job based upon this fact? Conservatives need to fight back using the REAL Constitution.
