No room for weasels here.

    Look at the interview, and the question. And tell me you're going to stick to that argument. That is so lame, its pathetic! Yep, you guys fell for a real dimwit in ODonnell. Congratulations.
    nope. he is just asking you to substantiate your claim.

    you cant do it, so you attack.

    lock-step with the party line!

    the "independent" party line that is... LOL!!!

    As usual you fail to comprehend. I'll spell it out for you.

    C. None of the Above

    C gets a majority of the votes - nobody is elected... Start over. Not quite the same as skipping a line is it?

    What claim? That she said that? Easily verifiable through any number of outlets.

    If you want to know her motivations, it would be far easier for you or your sidekick to get into her head. You're much closer to her mental functioning that anyone else on this list.

    You guys are endless entertainment. Lets hear it now, how the Constitution is all Bible-based and supports a church-state. I know its coming next. Give me 3:30 to pop some popcorn first.

    oh yeah, i failed to see that. my apologies.

    starting over makes so much more sense. so we just go out and conjure up 2 new candidates. 2 new candidates with new funding, new mudslinging, etc.... wow, that sounds so simple......

    tell me - does this fantasy land you live in have chicks with 4 boobs???

    That interpretation, which is also reflected in correspondence among other principals at the time, has been upheld by the courts consistently. It was never intended as a rejection of religion. Rather it reflected the belief, common at the time, that religion was a personal matter and not the stuff of government. That there were variations in attitude among the state governments was itself one of the reasons why the states did not want the federal government involved.



    Have you heard the latest? The "exact phrase" separation of church and state came from Hitler. So that makes Liberals Nazis.


    GOP candidate: Hitler invented separation of church and state

    By Muriel Kane
    Friday, September 17th, 2010 -- 9:52 pm

    Christine O'Donnell isn't the only Delaware Tea Party candidate making waves.

    The seat in the House of Representatives currently held by Republican Mike Castle -- who was defeated by O'Donnell in Tuesday's Senatorial primary -- is also up for grabs. The Republican primary for that office was won by Tea Partier Glen Urquhart, and it turns out that his political positions may be even more unique than O'Donnell's.

    "Do you know, where does this phrase 'separation of church and state' come from?" Urquhart asked at a campaign event last April. "It was not in Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists. ... The exact phrase 'separation of Church and State' came out of Adolph Hitler’s mouth, that's where it comes from. So the next time your liberal friends talk about the separation of Church and State ask them why they’re Nazis."

    "My jaw dropped when I heard it," rival candidate Kevin Wade told Delaware Online. "And he was emphatic about it -- it was not like a slip of the tongue. He got applause from half the crowd, and that disturbed me. I'd say half the room was stunned and the other half applauded."

    According to Delaware Online, "Urquhart says the statement was taken out of context and that he did not explain his point very well. If he could do it over, he said, he would add more historical context and explain why he rejects Hitler's take on the relationship between government and the church."
    The video is really entertaining. Watch it and see if you think anything was taken out of context.

    Life must be really scary in that alternate reality.

    Who said or has said that the constitution supports a church state. Clearly it doesn't but another thing it doesn't say is there is supposed to be a separation between church and state. What it clearly says (and since the founders were supposed to be some of the smartest people of their time in America I'm pretty sure that they were able to form sentences and says exactly what they meant) Is that shall be no state religion established. Hence its called the establishment clause. It's not called the separation clause. Don't you think if you the founders wanted complete separation they would've taken down the religious symbols throughout the land. Instead that didn't start happening until "Progressives" came around.

    Jefferson didn't write one word of the Constitution. Nor did he pen any of the Federalist Papers. Nor did he ever cast one vote on ratification of the Constitution. He was a very influential president whose opinions about religion and the Constitution, written in a letter a decade and a half after the Constitution, became the de facto interpretation. I wouldn't exactly argue that his interpretation was shared by a majority of the men who envisioned, wrote and ratified the Constitution. I also know, that despite the Left's tittering and snickering, you will indeed find no specific mention of separation of church and state in the United States Constitution.

    After hearing what she said, and hearing people rush to her defense and spin this, all I can say is:

    GOD HELP US!!
