Quote of the week

"The First Amendment…does not say that in every respect there shall be a separation of church and state…Otherwise, the state and religion would be aliens to each other…We are a religious people and our institutions presuppose a Supreme Being…When the state encourages religious instruction…it follows the best of our traditions."

Supreme Court Justice and noted liberal William O. Douglas

Respectfully, I disagree. I do believe in a sharp separation between church and state.
