|3. Re-defining Christians, Religion and Separation of Church and State
Since the re-election of our Republican President, the media has begun to paint a picture of
Christians as people who are hypocritical and live in a world devoid of feelings or respect for
other religions. They instantly reach for the 1st Amendment as the defense for their feelings
against Christians, Religion and a Separation. The amendment needs to be read in full to
understand the meaning.
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......Bill of Rights
The “Separation of Church and State” phrase which many invoked, and which has today become so familiar, was taken from an exchange of letters between President Thomas Jefferson and the Baptist Association of Danbury, Connecticut. This phrase is not in the Constitution or Bill of Rights.
