MELANIA TRUMP SAYS "THE LORD'S PRAYER" OUT LOUD IN PUBLIC AND LIBERALS ARE HAVING CONNIPTION FITS
The first lady recently spoke at an event in Florida, beginning her words by praying, out loud and in public (http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/02/19/melania-trump-opens-florida...). Liberals are having conniption fits, saying she violated the Constitution and quoting the "separation of church and state" clause in the Constitution. Those morons aren't either intelligent enough, educated enough, or both, to know what is or isn't written in the Constitution of the United States of America, the "Law of the Land". The "separation of church and state" thing isn't in the Constitution, it came from a letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury, Connecticut Baptist Association when they contacted him regarding the federal government interfering with their right to worship. His response assured them that they were safe, that there was a "wall of separation" that prevented the government from interfering in church matters. In 1948 the supreme court took 8 words of that letter out of context and ruled that Christians could not be involved in government matters. What the Constitution actually says is that the government cannot establish a national religion or denomination and demand that everyone adhere to it, such as islam installing sharia law and forcing everyone, under penalty of death, to comply with its legalities. It is very apparent, not only that the "establishment clause" does not preclude Christians from being involved in government, it also does not ban praying in public, political figures from praying, or the public display of Christianity on public or private property.
