If you believe – as I do – that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were inspired, then you must believe – as I do – that God inspired the Separation of Church and State. What we do in whatever house of worship we attend, or do not attend, is between the individual and God.
God never wanted to be in the White House, or the Congress or the School. Man wants his version of God in those places. If God inspired the Constitution and Bill of Rights there is no other way to believe. You cannot have it both ways.
You cannot believe God inspired the First Amendment only to keep Congress out of Churches, and is OK with forcing religion on everyone else, whether through worship or through laws. You see, Shariah Law is Shariah Law whether administered by radical Islam or radical Christianity, it is the same.
If your opposition, or favor, of any secular law is “Because God says so” then you are in opposition to the very principles God established when He inspired the Founding Fathers.
God does not want forced worship or devotion, that is not His plan, but it is someone else’s.

The Constitution is NOT a buffet. You don’t get to pick and choose which parts you want. Thank you for this wisdom, and may your voice be raised in many places!

It is twisted logic, indeed, to suppose that hearing words or seeing religious symbols is forcing religion on people. This country is in trouble being populated with citizens being taught this nonsense in the schools and from the courts.
