Separation of Which Churches and State?

"And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure if we have lost the only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath?" - Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia

Is the Constitution a living breathing document that can be changed on the fly?  The left sure thinks so.  One part is misused so often by them:  "Separation of church and state".

It's more like the separation of "which church and state" these days. 

Come to think of it, that phrase is only convenient when Conservatives/Republicans can be called racists, bigots, hate mongers, etc.  For example, when it comes to ObamaCare, the left tells us the Catholic church is nothing more than a bunch of women haters. They discount the lawsuits being filed around the country on the mandate that requires even religious organizations to provide  contraceptives!  That separation of church and state clause doesn't exist for this, they profess!

Next example...Locally - two local churches getting funds from Department of Public Instruction.  And to boot the current Board of Education chairman.  So NO again, according to these examples,  to separation of church and state.

Next example...Do you really think the following article is all about letting black Pastors know how to legally "talk about politics from the pulpit"?  

Absolutely not.   Ask yourself - why exclude white Pastors?  Isn't it called discrimination
when one race is preferred over another?  Let me remind you the Democratic party claims to be the party of diversity, of equality, and for all.  Right!  You let a white church speak out against government or proclaim how one should use God's word to determine who to vote for and you will see a fast track to legal issues spear-headed by the IRS. 
So why does the AG feel the need to do this only for Black Pastors? And to include IRS agents and the ACLU?? I just don't trust this administration any further than I can kick.  (that ain't too far with a total knee replacement)....
And this comes across this afternoon: 
 Holder to black leaders: 'Sacred' right to vote under attack

Really?  The US top Attorney is telling African Americans the right to vote is being denied when all we want is voter ID legislation!  If this is the case, then the sacred right to write checks for mortgages, open a bank account, cash social security checks, make Walmart purchases by check, buy pharmaceuticals, Sudafed, file for unemployment and even to be seen at a doctor's office - all those are coming under attack too, Eric!  Because you have to have an id to do all those things.  Heck, you can't go to a pawn shop and sell something without an ID.  I bet they will show an ID to go buy beer or liquor.  And our own Dumpling Governor required IDs to attend her fundraisers. 

Frankly, if the citizens are stupid enough to believe this  nonsense then please SIT HOME on election day.  You have no business voting if you don't know that no one can take away your right to vote.  NO ONE that is a citizen!  It's guaranteed by the Constitution. 
See for yourself:

AMENDMENT XV
Passed by Congress February 26, 1869. Ratified February 3, 1870.
Section 1.
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude--
Section 2.
The Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

There's a problem. Democrats don't want the non-citizens to be revealed. Because it's illegal for them to vote. And they will be caught if they have to produce an ID. They don't even want the dead to be able to rest in peace. You see the more votes they get, the more power they will gain. If they can keep the ID issue as an infringement on the rights of all, not just American citizens, they will again succeed to win fraudulent elections. 

So Holder and company are just full of crap.  They "are not telling the truth".   In real world terms, they are lying! So when is Holder coming to Sanford?  Surely Mr.  Mellette and Mr. Williams want him to come here and "demonstrate" how the poor might be treated.  Give me a break.  Let's just hope we don't have any mischief  like selling votes, double voting, dead people voting, etc.  Without proof how do the poll workers know the person hasn't already voted?  They don't.   The entire idea of an ID at the polls is to reduce fraud. 

If I didn't know any better I'd think every church that allows Holder, the ACLU and IRS agents to come, will only be looking for ways to "push the envelope." 
What do you think about that?

Most assuredly, we are witnessing a true form of "favoritism" that this bunch from Chicago only knows resulting in pitting one group against another. Understand this a well worn tactic used by progressives, tyrants, and dictators alike, and that is to "divide and conquer."

I on the other hand support the religious freedom of all clergy to espouse the biblical teachings, that led to the formation of our nation and it's character. Of course our educational system intentionally deletes the influence of our clergy in the formation of this nation.

The Black Robed Regiments led this country's founding. . . not the "deists" that the progressives like to conjure up. A very good essay on the Black Robed Regiment can be read here: (warning: The Truth Shall Set You FREE)

The essay closes with a prophetic message from the Rev. Charles Finney, to his peers during the Second Great Awakening (the religious movement that helped abolish slavery):

"Brethren, our preaching will bear its legitimate fruits. If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree. If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation."

As always, I shall remain . . . In Search of Our GOD Given Liberties!
