Anyone in the education system as head the phrase "separation of Church and state" uttered until they can barely stomach those 8 syllables. Note that this was term coined after the Constitution - those words appear nowhere in our frame yet they are a mantra for those afraid of the conviction the Holy Spirit might bring and the power that God Almight will wrought throughout our country.
However, the First Ammendement does say:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. . ."
The intent: No State Church. They had experienced that in England. They had seen people die and disappear for disagreement with the State Church.
The irony: in "protecting" us with separation of church and state they have often prohibited "the free exercise thereof!"
But do we have a State Religion?
I think so.
History has taught us that National Pride often comes from having a common enemy. It has been England, it has been Germany, it has been Russian and was exercised during the Cold War - we knew who the enemy was and we were going after him!
Yet, with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Cold War growing warmer, who has become the enemy?
Society can't blame God - there are too many for the all-encompassing to choose from and, for the atheist, they would have to acknowledge the existence of a Creator.
Society can't accept Grace - they would have to acknowledge God. Still.
So they blame themselves.
And the name of this new religion? Environmentalism.
It's State Color? Green.
And's Motto? Global Warming! Climate Change!
Their High Priest? Al Gore.
Their aim? Global Control.
Control of what? You name! They declare everything "environmentally unfriendly" and accounce it should be regulated! Oil, Gas, Industry - even Education!!
So where are you worshiping?
