ACLU trying to prohibit exercise of religion


Last updated ERROR at ERROR

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ... ." Isn't it a stretch to claim, as the American Civil Liberties Union does, that Pastor Zerger's prayer at Northern's graduation ceremonies equates to a law by Congress establishing a religion?

Indeed, isn't the ACLU itself attempting to prohibit the free exercise of religion, in violation of the First Amendment? In reality, the term "separation of church and state" is nowhere to be found in the Constitution.

Rather it is found in a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Association in response to a letter from them expressing concerns about their own religious freedom.

Does the ACLU really not know this, or is it just hoping that the rest of us don't? Isn't it long past time to stand up to the ACLU and say: Not in our town?

Or, as the apostle Peter said to the pharisees upon being told to keep silent about Jesus: We must obey God rather than men.
