O’Donnell Doesn’t Know The Constitution
Like most of the tea baggers I’ve seen and heard of, Christine O’Donnell seems to have no clue about what the Constitution says or what it means.
The first amendment of the bill of rights establishes the separation of church and state.
Here’s the first amendment of the bill of rights:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The phrase “separation of church and state” was first used by Thomas Jefferson and it is used in reference to the passage above. Although the phrase “separation of church and state” is not in the constitution, the first amendment establishes the separation in its language.
