How frustrating that this continues to even be a debate. It's a never ending battle. They think of it as an attack on Christianity, but really it's a protection for everyone, regardless of belief or non-belief. Even when I was a believer, I supported the separation of Church and State, because my beliefs were not mainstream, and I did agree that government buildings should be neutral.
 
After you posted the information on school vouchers being defeated, I posted the information on my secular forum expecting some good and insightful comments. I was deeply disappointed. It turned out that even atheists argued for the voucher program. Their reasoning was that the public schools were a mess, so this may be a solution. Kids will follow the religion of their parents, regardless of the schools the government funds. AND we don't have a right to tell others how to believe (not sure where that one comes from). There was absolutely no regard for the Constitution in the matter, and no concern about maintaining the separation.
 
It really gets discouraging.

FFRF's Dan Barker was on FOX News talking about their (temporary?) victory... at 2:18 he gets in one of his classic barbed quips! :)

Yeah...I participate in commenting on HP.  What a run I had with a believer.  Wowzie.  

There are still a few nuts out there.  No matter how many times I mentioned it was separation of church and state and that is the LAW, I was evil and scaring the good christian people because I was one of those people that was "godless" and will hurt anyone that loves god.

Oh boy....
