The Argument Against Idiots: Separation of Church and State

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts



 


The issue:

'Separation of Church and State'

What the liberal whiners say:

‘Thank GOODNESS for the Reverend Barry Lynn and Americans United for Separation of Church and State calling for the IRS to investigate that Catholic Bishop Arthur Serratelli, for jumping into this Presidential race...there is NO place for that in American politics...he needs to have his 501c status revoked!'

'Just as the Rev. Barry Lynn said: 'it's a HIDDEN AGENDA to sway votes!'

'Why do you hate CIVIL LIBERTIES...which is what the "C" and "L" in ACLU stand for...and why do you hate the U.S. Constitution? Like it or not religious zealots, there is a Constitutional separation of church and state in this country!'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. You're talking about the statement Bishop Serratelli made that the democratic candidate promised, as his FIRST act as president, to sign the pro-abortion, Freedom of Choice Act? He didn't even name the candidate, and he didn't endorse anyone...he was talking about a MORAL issue...that's what Bishops DO!

2. Oh, I guess you prefer the much more OPEN agenda of Jeremiah Wright and Michael Phlegar...both of whomunabashadly called for Barack Obama to be elected...from their PULPITS! And by the way, please stop calling Barry Lynn a REVEREND. He's a phony, former ACLU attorney, who only goes after conservative, white Christians. I didn't see him sick the IRS on Jeremiah Wright and Father Phlegar, did you?

3. No there isn't. There IS a Constitutional PROTECTION of religion in this country, that gives that Bishop the right to say what he did. But let me share the "establishment clause" of the 1st Amendment with you, since you've obviously never read it: Oh what the heck, I'll share the whole thing so you won't be able to say that I took it out of context. Here it is:

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. No mention of a "separation of church and state". That came in an 1803 letter from Thomas Jefferson to a Baptist minister to assure him that the United States would never declare a state religion.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
