    Default This week in history: Americans United for Separation of Church and State founded

    Very interesting article. I just think the whole separation of church and state can be very fuzzy. I absolutely go along with praying and bible teaching not being legal in a public school. That would force a certain belief on all children. What I do have a problem with is when a town cannot display a nativity or something like that. If you don't like it, don't look at it. Too many grey areas IMO that start trampling on peoples rights.

    Americans United for Separation of Church and State was established 70 years ago by a broad coalition of religious, educational and civic leaders. Its Manifesto was issued on November 20, 1947, which is considered the official founding date. President Harry S Truman was in the White House, and the Cold War and anti-Communist blacklist were revving up.

    At that time, proposals were pending in the U.S. Congress to extend government aid to private religious schools. Many Americans opposed this idea, insisting that government support for religious education would violate church-state separation. The decision was made to form a national organization to promote this point of view and defend the separation principle.

    Americans United (AU) leaders wanted a group with a nationwide focus that would be active on several fronts. The organization worked to educate members of Congress, as well as state and local lawmakers, about the importance of maintaining church-state separation. State and local chapters of AU were formed, and the organization began publishing Church & State magazine and other materials to educate members of the general public. These activities continue today and form the core of AU’s operations.

    The Separation of Church and State is the biggest lie ever push against the people. Anyone reading the Documents would see for themselves. History is solid on this. This is how they drove out Religion. This was one of the moments of the decline of the people and Moral breakdown.

    The State may not form it's own religion sect over any other and they were talking about a form of Christianity. Not that God should be killed and kept from the people.
    You may not infringe of my right of religion but is't that exactly what they have done.

    God's Moral law is the center and without that what do you have. There will be something that rules over you.

    It was the religious people, the biblical scholars of the day that crucified the Christ. and That is what this is.

    Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and killed, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name. 10 At that time many will fall away and will betray and hate one another, 11 and many false prophets will arise and mislead many.

    Please see above and then read this.

    People will “betray one another and will hate one another. . . . The love of the greater number will cool off.”​—Matthew 24:10, 12.

    Hate and fear ... I wonder who spreads this disease the most on this board ?
