Ms O'Donnell I think you should run for office on the separation of church and dog meet-up platform......

Also your ignorance with regards to 'separation of church and state' is sadly laughable. NO WHERE in ANY of our founding documents is this 'notion' mentioned. It's history has been so bastardized by the American left so as to insert government as the official religion of these United States that only few actually do know the history of the phrase, you most clearly being one of them. The phrase itself comes from a letter Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury Baptists.


"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,"thus building a wall of separation between Church & State." Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties." ~~ Thomas Jefferson Jan. 1. 1802

Ma'am I find it hilarious that pseudo intellectuals liberals don't know that the phrase was introduced to modern day conversation by Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black who was appointed to the bench in 1937 by none other than the 'King of American Socialism' Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Justice Black, fittingly a demon-rat, was also fittingly a leader in the Alabama Ku Klux Klan. The case in which Klansman Black harkened back to the above letter was Everson v Board of Education. Black wrote a majority opinion proclaiming a constitutional mandate for a "wall of separation between church and state". Klansman black HATED Catholics and Jews.

Lastly the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution simply says : "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The lovely and effervescent Cheryl attempted to stifle Sherry's 1st Amendment rights and was then defended to varying degrees by many, myself the most vehemently.

Ms O'Donnell you bring up 'president' Obomba who offends me GREATLY but I don't whine about it or attempt to silence those who don't believe as I do. I seek to DESTROY the ideology along with the pain and suffering it has wrought upon this once great, free country.

God Bless America,

I would now like to be removed from this list.  If Cheryl was originally tactless and insensitive, the ugliness that has been spouted from many of you mocking religious diversity, separation of church and state, and people who might support President Obama is equally, if not more offensive.  People might simply have argued with Cheryl that someone has the right to their email by-line, period.  But the responses from 4-5 of you is  the reason that many of us do believe in separation of church and state, also a tenet of our country's founding. Please remove me from the list.

I applaud Sherry for enclosing a bible verse at the end of her email. America was founded on Christian fundamentals and beliefs. And now we cannot have prayer in the school or say In God We Trust.  If Washington has their way, we will be speaking Chinese or Arabic and bowing to Buda  or kneeling on a prayer rug.

To anyone who is picking this to death , I say GET A LIFE AND GO FIND ANOTHER BONE TO CHEW ON. OR BETTER YET " IF U CAN RUN WITH THE BIG DOGS , DONT GET OFF THE OFF THE PORCH!!"

As for me, I want Sherry as my prayer warrior!!
