If the repubs did thiis, every separation of church and stste and atheist group would be in an uproar.I'm not sure you understand the position of those of us firmly on the side of separating church and state.Separation doesn't mean kids can't pray at school and have their holy book, prayer rug, yarmulke, whatever. It doesn't mean that elected officials can't invoke and worship whatever god they choose. It doesn't mean that the President can't honestly want -- or joke about -- needing prayers to overcome budget problems.What separation *does* mean is that a single religion cannot be officially sanctioned by the state, nor should holders of one faith (or no faith at all) be beholden to the beliefs or customs of another. That means not forcing non-Christians to have to pray before the big high school football game, or hanging the Ten Commandments in a courtroom.So, no, I don't think "every separation of church and stste(sic) and atheist group would be in an uproar" if a Republican President did the same thing, as most understand that nuance.Speck
