Good Quote 12-9-15

“The wall of separation between church and state is important and should be maintained.   However, it should not be extended and reinterpreted as the separation of God and state.

There is nothing in our Constitution or its amendments to indicate that all vestiges of faith must be removed from the public square.  This inappropriate extension of the concept of separation of church and state is in fact in direct opposition to the portion of the First Amendment that says Congress can make no law “prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”  This phrase means that no one should be prohibited from living a life of faith according to the dictates of conscience, as long as they are not harming others.”
