 Sarah Palin

We’re sorry, is it 1776? It isn’t? Oh, well we got a little confused while watching Sarah Palin on Bill O’Reilly talk about how America should “go back” and create laws based on the Bible and the Ten Commandments.

In response to a backlash against the National Day of Prayer, Palin told O’Reilly, “Go back to what our founders and our founding documents meant – they’re quite clear – that we would create law based on the God of the Bible and the Ten Commandments.”

She also claimed that people who are against the National Day of Prayer are trying to “transform America” and shift the country away from its Christian foundation.

You could see how we got so confused – this is 2010, and yet, we’ve got a lady in the public eye trying to set our entire country back 230 years. Is Palin not familiar with the separation of church and state? Or does she not realize that America is significantly more diverse than it was when our Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution?

Mrs. Palin, if we’re such a “Christian nation,” then we suggest you take a look at the 2007 U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, so that you can better understand the massive country of diversified people you are speaking about. And then we suggest you fully think through what you’re saying before you go on national television and suggest we make ideas like “Thou shall not commit adultery” into law (Tiger Woods would be in so much trouble!).

Watching this video again would make us throw things at our computer, but we’ve posted it here for you so that you can hear Palin’s thoughts from her own mouth. Oh, and if you think Bill O’Reilly has such a level head, we suggest you watch this little gem. (Huffington Post)

  1. The Founding Fathers were Deists, Sarah Palin. They didn’t want America to be a Christian nation. To say otherwise is a lie, plain and simple.

  2. Even I know that the establishment clause of the First Amendment does not – contrary to some beliefs – create a separation of church and state. It merely prevents the federal government from creating a national Church, to which all its citizens must belong.

    There also is no determination that the government may not endorse a religious message.

    When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    … [W]ith a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

    Gee, where can that be from? Oh yeah, the Declaration of Independence

    The often quoted words “separation of church and state” are not from the constitution but from the mind and mouth of Hugo Black a Judge appointed by FDR who was at one time a lawyer who defended a man who killed a Catholic priest, was a member of the KKK, became a senator and then Supreme Court Justice. It was in a case where funds were wanted for transportation of Catholic students where he stood for a “Strict Law of separation of church and state.” Again, these words are not to be found in the Constitution of the United States anywhere. When these words are used they are quotes from a racist with an agenda.

    the words “separation of church and State do not appear anywhere in the Constitution –
