Separation of Church and State

socas4

A misinterpretation of the Constitution’s first amendment clause commonly known as the “Establishment Clause” often causes the misunderstanding of separation of church and state. The face our Nation presents to the rest of the world is not that of what we purport to be our beliefs as a united people. According to Thomas Jefferson in…

Sorry, Your Version of God is Kind of a Dick

This past Friday there was a scheduled Muslim prayer service held inside the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. A remarkable step forward in the quest to show the true spiritual diversity that makes up our Nation. Kudos, props and Kewpie dolls all around, right?

These fundamental believers are beset with…
