[In response to her opponent, Chris Coons, who said, "I believe that creationism is religious doctrine,"
(interrupted here by O'Donnell, insisting that the "theory" of intelligent design is different than creationism)... "Evolution is widely accepted, well-defended, scientific fact."
Wow, you've just proven how little you know, not just about Constitutional law, but about the theory of evolution, because the theory of evolution is not
a fact, it is indeed a theory, but I'm saying that that theory, if local school districts want to give that theory equal creedence to intelligent design, it is their right. You are saying it is not their right. That is what has gotten our country into this position. It's the overreaching arm of the federal government, getting into the business of the local communities. The Supreme Court has always said it is up to the local communities to decide their standards. The reason we're in the mess we're in is because our so-called leaders in Washington no longer view the indispensable principles of our founding as truly that, indispensable.
Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?
[Room full of laughter at that question. Later...]
So you're telling me that the separation of church and state, the phrase of, "Separation of church and state," is found in the 1st Amendment?
[More from Coons]
Let me just clarify. You're telling me that the separation of church and state is found in the 1st Amendment?
[Coons quotes the establishment clause]
That's in the 1st Amendment? *snicker*
[Room fills with laughter again]
