The Separation Between Church & State?
To the Editor;
When a lie is repeated again and again, many merely start believing it. For example the alleged “wall of separation between church and state.”
This typically used phrase is falsely attributed to the Structure. In actuality it got here from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson, in 1802, in response to the Danbury Baptist’s concern over a rumor they’d heard that the American authorities was going to arrange a nationwide church, very like the Anglican Church in England. Within the letter, Jefferson defined to the clergymen that the founding fathers had arrange a wall of separation between church and state to stop that from taking place in America.
Thomas Jefferson had no intention of permitting the federal government to restrict, prohibit, regulate or intrude with public spiritual practices. He believed, together with the opposite founders, that the First Modification had been enacted solely to stop the federal institution of a nationwide denomination. In 1947 the Supreme Courtroom took a easy assertion supposed to suggest that authorities wouldn’t intrude with the church and so they distorted it. The courtroom used Jefferson’s letter to create a brand new interpretation of the First Modification. The end result was an interpretation that went properly past the framers’ unique intent. It’s the responsibility of the Courtroom to guard the Structure not change it.
The Declaration of Independence clearly claims that there’s an Almighty Creator God, that our rights come from Him. There will be no separation of God from authorities, as a result of He created it to safe the unalienable rights He created you with.
It needs to be apparent that the “separation of church and state” phrase has been used to twist the that means of the First Modification to the other of the unique intent.
