Hey All You Idiot Teapublicans: The US Constitution GUARANTEES Separation of Church & State

Some of the more radically stupid conservative TeaPublicans in this country claim that our politics needs to return to the foundations established by the Constitution. The problem with these dumbasses is that they don't even know what is actually written in the Constitution and the original Amendments, in particular the First Amendment, nor do they have the slightest notion as to the reasons for the founding of this new country. Here are a few pertinent quotes from a couple of our founding fathers. It would be wise for everyone in this country, those on the right, left, independent, conservative, liberal, libertarian, etc. to actually read of the lessons of our founding fathers before opening a vacuous stupid mouth and release inane comments.

“If I could conceive that the general government might ever be so administered as to render the liberty of conscience insecure, I beg you will be persuaded, that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution.”
~George Washington, letter to the United Baptist Chamber of Virginia, May 1789

“I am for freedom of religion and against all maneuvers to bring about a legal ascendancy of one sect over another.”
~Thomas Jefferson, letter to Elbridge Gerry, January 26, 1799

 “The civil government … functions with complete success … by the total separation of the Church from the State.”
~James Madison, 1819, Writings, 8:432, quoted from Gene Garman, “Essays In Addition to America’s Real Religion”
