When a liberal Supreme Court in the 60's began a separation of Church and State that wasn't constitutional. This includes rulings regarding prayer in school, where the Ten Commandments can be displayed, etc. What made what they did even worse is that they provided no precedents in their rulings. Meaning they didn't look back at the intent of the authors of the Constitution in an effort to accurately rule on this issue. Why did they throw out standard protocol?
There were over 15,000 documents which addressed "Separation," in the 1780's, and no where did they discuss us not being a Christian nation. To the contrary, our very first Chief Justice wrote about the importance of having Christians in leadership positions so that the Constitution would be upheld. They stated they didn't want a national religion, such as Baptist or Lutheran, but they firmly believed that our success would be tied to our morals and thus Christianity.
The Federal and State budgets from the very beginning included money to support Christian-based colleges and universities. Some are still around to this day. If a liberal's view of Separation of Church and State were true, the government wouldn't have been sponsoring religious organizations. They even looked at providing tax benefits to churches as their own form of tithing. A way for the government to show that we are a godly nation. The Supreme Court justices left these little tidbits out.
There's absolutely no doubt that if we took two specialists with opposing views to "Separation," and placed them on national television to debate, the liberal would get his or her clock cleaned. It wouldn't even be close. I think we should reload this issue for the Supreme Court to determine and this time do what they always did before and that is look at the authors' intents in creating the legislation.
I guess the answer to this question is quite simple: "Are we better off having taken God out of public places?" It's time to fight back.
