A new Rasmussen poll shows that the overwhelming majority of Americans (76%) support allowing religious symbols on public land. 83% think public schools should actively celebrate religious holidays.
This flies in the face of everything we are told by radical left-wing groups like the ACLU about where the American people stand on this issue. It also clarifies just how far out of the mainstream these liberal groups are...like the American Humanist Association, which recently launched its creepy 'No God? No Problem!' ad campaign nationwide for the holidays.
And, of course, this poll also shows that the American people openly defy the left's bigoted, Constitution-trampling war on Christianity.
"Separation of church and state" appears nowhere in the Constitution. Additionally, the Bill of Rights was drafted specifically to convince hesitant states that this new federal government would not trample their rights...including their religious rights. As with everything else in the Bill of Rights, the Establishment Clause of the 1st Amendment was a protection of the states vs. the federal government; it was a protection against a national religion.
If people find it inappropriate for an Alabama judge to acknowledge our Judeo-Christian heritage with a Ten Commandments display in his courthouse, then, according to the Constitution, that is a matter for the people of Alabama to decide, not some federal court. The federal government even being involved constitutes an outright reversal of what was intended.
Some of the ratifying states actually even had official state religions at the time of the founding. Think about that.
