You can't justify an establishment of religion on the grounds that it is simply a free exercise of your religion.Fyyr wrote:Modern day Christians eschew the Bishop's concern, and are trying to use that as an 'in', if you will, for instilling ID and Creationism in curricula, as well as being able to hand out bibles on public school campuses, etc. And this is the background that O'Donnell comes from, so it makes sense that she was trying to hedge here, albeit laughably.
Anyone who thinks they can is possibly even more dangerous than clueless people like O'Donnell who are simply unaware of the rule against establishment of religion.

I am pretty sure that these people want Christ and Creationism taught in schools, they tried it in the 80s and 90s, they will try it again now.
