dumb kids

September 28, 2007

So there are some silly people in the world. Some high school students in Colorado have decided that they can no longer say the pledge of allegiance because it violates the constitutionally mandated separation of church and state. I think this is funny because so often we take up causes with little knowledge of the real issue. There’s no constitutionally mandated separation of church and state. Mrs. Klein taught me that the Bill of Rights only prohibits the state from establishing religions. I agree that the church and the state need to be separate because if not, you get leaders who are only elected because they appeal to a certain religious right with no real qualifications or ability *cough cough*. Anyway–some people can be dumb. Hooray America.


Amendment I

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.

    …and wait a minute…since when do HIGH SCHOOLERS know enough about the constitution to determine what it actually says?? Isn’t there a panel of highly trained judges in Washington that is still trying to figure that out?
