The Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

The ridiculous current GOP conversation about the perceived [bogus] attack on religion by the Obama administration is at best laughable and at its worst quite dangerous. Our brilliant Founders deeply feared an establishment of any state religion [Establishment Clause] – they knew how badly that turns out by being educated in the history of European nations where the Crusades, the Inquisition and other “at the end of a sword” religious conversions were army/government perpetrated and sponsored.

In this great nation, ALL can and do practice openly and freely the religion of their choice …including a few not quite palpable “cult” like practices. The Presidential 2012 GOP candidates are insulting the American sensibility by even suggesting that something like insurance covered contraception at hospitals and schools with a religious affiliation is any type of assault – there is NO assault by President Obama but there is an assault on ALL our freedoms because if [G-d forbid] Romney or Santorum  become President then you and I will then be mandated to practice our faiths as they deem correct instead of the Constitutional guaranteed religion of our own individual choice. I, myself, as a proud American Jew [with both Muslim and Christian ancestry]  is fearful of their rhetoric. May G-d bless the great U.S.A. and the memory of our brave Founders – who wanted to prevent our divine inspired nation from becoming a totalitarian theocracy (ex. Iran or the former Taliban run Afghanistan).

SHALOM!!!!
